Quite possibly the coolest bus I have ever seen...

2 weeks ago I headed south to Antioch for Nor Cal Bus Fest 8. There were tons of great old VW buses there, but none came close to the one I saw them unloading as I walked in.

This 1951 panel bus is assumed to be the oldest surviving bus that was originally imported into America. It was imported to Hoffmann Motors on March 22, 1951! That is early!

Fantastic graphics. Amazingly simple, early design. Way cool.

Look at that interior (or, lack of interior!)

All in all, an amazing VW bus. I was glad to have gotten the chance to stick my head in it and check it out.


Ludwig's Drivers

The poor thing will probably never get driven again, just rolled off and on the trailer at the next show like a circus freak.
