    Thank you for the video. I have been a Beetle fan and owner for a long time. I was on the fence about buying a split screen bus, but after viewing your video, it convinced me to buy a '66 Camper van. I hope the owner gives me the opportunity to buy it. Thanks again from New Orleans, Louisiana. Merci.

    To everyone. The VW split screen "stock" is a dangerous piece of crap. Only 30hp and top speed of 62 miles and hour. 0-30 in about a minute. Its a legendary piece of shit.

    I'd Love to Know, :- WHAT CRIME DID YOU COMMIT to Deserve such Severe Punishment. I Thought TORCHURE WAS BANNED By Human Rights ? It Must be Far Cheaper & Quicker to Travel by A Real Car & arrive Early & book into A Reasonable B&B. & Send the VW on a Car Transporter. For the Price of a VW Camper , You could do a short 6 month Break in a very EXOTIC Foreign Location. Where the Bar is Perched in the Calm Sea on Old BT Telegraph poles. Where they Serve RUM & Coca Cola for Breakfast. & You Sleep in a Hammock tied to a Palm Tree or Coconut Tree. Just A Bit of FUN to Make anyone Smile who Reads this. ( or hate me ? )

In the US thats less than the distance from Arizona to freaking Texas which is only one state over. From Arizona to the capital is just under 3,000 miles. Wtf
