    I was pretty lucky with the cooling system in my Vanagon. It was a manual Weekender, so I usually tried to keep it pretty light running around town and would try and be easy on it fully loaded.

    Singlecross, I ran those BF Goodrichís on it with the black steelies, no hub caps. Got lots of compliments and those tires are worth the coin, mostly due to the stiff sidewalls. Tightened the sway up for me, which probably isnít so bad without the poptop lid riding so high.

    Test drove another EV this week. It was a Ď93 with a manual. Very nostalgic riding around in it. The smells, the feel of sitting over the wheels, the manual tranny, it all took me right back. Just not sure I want to go back there.

    My Ď85 westy wolfsburg I bought for $3,500 and drove for more than 15 years and sold it for $3,500, BUT - it would be the same problem as this Ď93. Bought cheap with some surface rust already starting, not quite nice enough to be worth a real renovation and I donít have the place to do paint and body justice.

    Iím leaning towards one of two options locally, later models both early Ď00ís. Both autos. Both paint matched top to body and ground effects that have been mostly garaged. At least when they blow a tranny itís worth replacing. Iíll drop some photos if I pull the trigger. Kinda funny that every one I go see has the same things broken or missing, like the poptop latch. A quick TheSamba search reveals you can use a Passat hood latch, but evidently no one has the internet any more 🙄

    Yeah, that was kind of funny. But it’s just an art piece, only the front part.
