Oh wow, I had no idea Dave. Thanks for doing that! It's definate B S that Jim couldn't at least have done what you did.


Sorry Jon! Didn't mean to throw you a scare! Guess I had Tiger on the brain, we got one I see locally but it's a pityful mess. We've even got a couple nice bugeyes running around... odd to see these in this neck of the woods.

i just thought you deserved credit for your work and you weren't getting it, so i wanted that guy and anyone else to know who the real builder was. it sucks that you sold the bus, for what i consider a steal, and he respects you this little.

people suck sometimes, but i guess that's part of life.

Unfortunately back burner. Lots of ideas and plans but other priorities right now. I really want to take this next project to a new level. I hope to have news later this summer.

again...props, props, props and a bowdown to Panel for the most awesome van i have ever seen...and was nearly in my garage had timing been different.

i don't think it a requirement that the seller indicate he did not personally perform all of the work, but at the same time he shouldn't be wording it so loosely that it leaves you with the impression he did it all. he should be listing the specs and leaving at that as a minimum.

looks like all of those words couldn't even bring him one bid though. if he can get that cash, more power to him. would just be an indicator that the value of custom VWs is going up which is not a bad thing for the people hear who are the ones building them, not buying. that said, he will never get $23k for it.

Exactly as Zen says. Its his to do with as he pleases and represent as he sees fit. Jim does seem to be a capable wrench, in my conversations with him, he knew a bit more than the average oil change specialist. He is also turning out to be quite a wordsmith .
More power to him on the price! I know every penny it cost to build and all the time I spent building... I would have LOVED to have banked +20k, but the reality is that I sold for what I felt was a fair price and have passed that opinion on to the people that contacted me about this auction.

Now that's a good place to start a brawl. The purists up in the rants would have a field day with it though...

did you give him pics of the build? or is he just going to steal them from your thread and send them to him? that guy's such a fraud.
