The Volkswagen Bus

September 30, 2009

I am starting a new catergory: Bus for all the posts about our new car: A 1975 Volkswagen Riviera Bus. Tonya and I have been looking for one for about a month. We found ours on craigslist and picked it up (we needed a trailer) on Friday September 25th. We will be posting details about the restoration and then the camping trips we have in Matilda. I will start with some “before” pictures to give an idea of what we are starting with.

The next post will outline our vision for Matilda and our progress so far.

    I just had some wind damage to the top on my 81 vanagon Now I have no top. Are you aware of anybody or company that is manufacturing these tops? I would appreciate any leads you can give me. Thanks, Bill in Astoria, Oregon

      My best idea would be to find a used top on craigslist or one of the forums. I would check and You might look around on for new parts.
