On the plus side, when the drivetrain has completely can live in the VW bus. Had some friends who lived in downtown Albany, NY. They lived on a corner lot. On one side, permanently parked, was a VW bus that someone lived in.

I had a 1971 in 1978. Valves needed adjustment every 2-3 months. Leaked oil like crazy. Power and torque were two words never used in discussion about the vehicle. I paid $1,200.00 for it from a well to do Buck Head lady, and if memory serves me, sold it for about the same about 1 1/2 years later.
Now here is the thing: it is on my personal list as one of my top three vehicles I've driven! Only I didn't realize that, until after it was gone.
Windshield just a short few inches in front of the steering wheel. The large round seemingly horizontal steering wheel was an absolute kick to drive. With the engine in the rear, there was seemingly no front end. The view and perception were nearly one with the road. The large front doors, and sliding side door were a personal invitation to a driving adventure each time out.

It was truly a blast to drive, and a PIA to own and maintain. I wish I still had it!

The VW Beetle and bus collector market continues to thrive, for all the reasons mentioned in the posts.

The photo is not my old bus, but same year and color. Ah...……..the 70's in Atlanta....hhhmmmmmmm.

I have a low milage, no rust and never hit 66 VW plain Jane Kombi. We painted it about 14 yrs ago and stored it in the back of my VW shop. Have been offered 25k+. Don't need to sell it so it'll just stay stored.
