Re: 1965 VW Kombi split windscreen (11 window)

21 window VW Bus's (Kombi's) here in the USA start at $10,000 USD (R 120,000) and; that's for a ratty one that needs major work.

Re: Registration and fines

That sounds very much like the State of California with their 'non-op' scam. Meaning if a previous owner of a vehicle didn't update the registration and didn't get a 'non operational permit', any subsequent registered owner will have to pay the backlog reg fees. Here in Arizona we don't have to deal...

Re: 67 Ford Thunderbird (used as donor car)

A lot of the front suspension parts will fit any 1965-68 BoF Ford like a Galaxie/LTD or even a 1966 RSA 'Fairlane' which is still a Galaxie, L or RHD.

Wash DC is very cold in the winter (comparable to Berlin, Germany) and; when it snows, road salt is spread which does evil things to cars, road/bridge rebar, etc.

Re: Mercedes 380 SE selling as spares. (1986).

I'm amazed at the amount of rust on that S Class. If it were a USA car; I'd peg it as being from our Rust Belt as in Washington DC on north.

Re: 1980 Chev C30 Multipurpose Truck

C30: will you keep it carb'd or go fuel injection? Too; manual or AT? Why all the questions is that a TBI conversion along with a 4L80 4 spd AT would make for a powerful truck that might return reasonable fuel economy. 8)
