I might not know much, but one thing I have discovered after spending 43 years on this planet is that the one thing you never have enough of is time. Time with your loved ones, time to get your day job done, time to carry out some DIY on your house, or time to work on old VWs. Life, as they say, happens when you’re busy making other plans… That’s certainly been the case for me of late, well the last couple of years truth be told. It doesn’t help that I always have so many things on the boil. At the time of going to press I’m talking two VWs - one that needs the brakes looking at and another that needs everything; two old motorcycles - one that needs…

a different league

Creative Coachworks has a reputation for turning out quality work, and have turned their hands to Porsche-powered Buses in the past, namely a black and white Samba with full Porsche running gear. It was an awesome piece of kit and memorable for all the right reasons. We weren’t the only ones impressed by that particular project, as speaking with the owner of this similarly Porsche-flavoured Bus, Symmr Sandhu, we discovered that Samba was the inspiration behind this build. Symmr explained: ‘I’d wanted a Split Bus for a long time and, back in 2009 I spotted an advert for a 15-window Fleetline.” He continued: ‘It was built in 1975, making it the same as age as me, so I went to look at and became the second owner.” Before we go any…

We all get bored of the same old same old, so why not look outside the box for your next build? One of the many great things about the VW scene is that anything goes and you can do what you like, how you like to your Bus, and the biggest change can be colour. So, whilst factory colours are great, why not copy something you know and love, like er, a bottle of Pepto-Bismol? Whilst that might sound crazy, that’s precisely what VW collector Russell Ritchie did when he commissioned Pepto2 – a VW Type 3 based homage to the original Pepto Type 3 built by Bill Schwimmer who was inspired himself by the oh-so pink belly medicine. Bill built the original Pepto over 30 years ago, so you…
