The the new VW microbus was going to be based off the eurovan chassis anyway (huge) so I think of it as kinda contrary to the whole microbus concept in the first place... Not that I remember my father's microbus with much fondness, engine fires, no cornering ability and watching the road go by through the hole in the floor just weren't the highlights of my life. It was however proceeded by the amc wagon and followed by the dodge caravan, so hey, auspicious company.

Great blog!
I really enjoyed looking over your last post. Pet peeve #1 - People with a cellphone plastered to their ear while trying to drive. Don't they realize all they have to do is go to www.bluetoothbargains.combluetooth headset get a bluetooth headset and make driving alot easier for all of us. Soon laws will require it! Well, keep the great posts coming and I'll be back to check it out.
