    Volkswagen’s practical and fun bus models have long been cultural icons, but lately, they're enjoying a real resurgence. Particularly, Westfalia conversions are demanding top dollar in places like southern California, where aging baby boomers are re-living their youths in these compact campers...

    The SEMA Show is certainly no stranger to the more extreme expressions of automotive design, modification and fabrication, and the Bus dreamt up by Utah street rod builders SKJ Customs is one of the more impressive undertakings at this year's event.  Powered by a supercharged flat four engine...

    It's a story nearly as old as time itself.  Something of value or significance is stashed away, people forget about it for a while, and eventually the item resurfaces, now with a much higher value.  This time, I highly doubt when the original owner stashed this Type 2 away, they would have...

    I'll cut right to the chase with this one- today's Find of the Day is quite possibly the nicest 23 Window Volkswagen Bus I've ever seen, if not in the world.  Located at RK Motors in Charlotte North Carolina, the bus is finished in "Sealing Wax Red" with a tan interior, which has seemingly...

    Created by Ben Pon in the 1940s, the Volkswagen Type 2 has gained a cult following due to its outright practicality and the role it played in the counter-culture movement of the 1960s.  Production of the Type 2 finally ended on December 31st, and the video below is sort of an "in memoriam" piece...
