I always wanted a vw bus. my cousin had one that I liked driving because it felt like driving a cab over truck because you were right up against the windshield. im looking at a 1973 pop up camper vw today and was wondering what I should look for and ask. it looks good in the pictures and the seller says it has a lot of new parts but the interior has been gutted for some reason. I like the 1973 because I wont have to smog it in the great state of California. they are asking 4500. that sounds a little high to me but it is worth looking at if the motor/tranny has been rebuilt or depends on the new parts. suggestions?
