the next project is a VW van, I bought it overf the week end, this one will have a 4 foot section cut out of it. It will be very short. I have done 3 of them like this before. all gas powered when I was in Florida with my auto restoration shop . not all that hard to do, but this time it will be electric powered . give my wife something to play with, or sell this one off too
Kinda cute but looks dangerously unstable. Maybe you should name it ... no, that would be politics. Sorry.
A guy named Otmar Ebenhoech (designer of the Zilla controller) welded two Vanagon buses together to make a long one. Originally he was going to electrify the front wheels and make a hybrid, but never got around to it.

I have a 67 Panel Bus that will be a show and go. A slow project for sure but coming along nicely. Mine will be used for hauling organic veggies to market and to deliver solar panels locally. That is the plan and its moving slowly forward.
Be cautious if you build one of these shortened VW buses - a good friend in high school built one and the first time he hit the brakes hard it flipped forward on it's nose, caught on fire and killed him.
