[I]n order to complete your project and register your new-old bus for street use in all 50 states, you'll need to plop it on an existing, original van chassis with its own VIN. Classic Steel Body says that depending on the state, you could also source your own non-original chassis and register it as a newly-assembled kit vehicle.
Crazy projects? I just want to find the crankshaft pulley bolt that I ordered and put my engine together!

Is that too much to ask?!

Found Rediscovered a motherlode, 2000+ pages on thesamba.com.





That Winnebago car hauler in Permalink #696 is a model. It explains how they got a Winnebago so straight.



edit:
Okay, I should find something else to do now.

Early Beetles would have had 145/16s, the one shown probably 165/15s.

What part looks fake? Film has issues with depth of field. The dust cloud obscures the dip that launched the car.
