I think I like my old, unmolested Westie better. I wish I still had it.

I hope there is more pushing that than the original flat-4. It probably barely put out enough to run the air pumps for the suspension.

About the only good thing I see about it is you don't need stabilizers or steps when camping in it.

I agree, what is there, a whole inch of clearance? It wouldn't even make it up my driveway. I do love old VW bus's though.

Did you all see the new version hitting the market?

It probably has an airbag suspension that allows it to be dropped super low when it's parked. I bet it can be raised 6-8 inches to be driven. Not real practical but I think looks pretty cool for what it is.

I'm really liking that 2014 VW Microbus rendition. Thanks for sharing. Mike
