I sold the 67 minus the engine, tranny, and rims, the new 64 replacement is 
making great progress (however taking up good time and money I could be putting 
into the bus). Turbo engine is built almost ready to install, Airkewled beam 
and drop spindles are installed as of last week.

Did you ever sell your 67?  That was a nice bug.

I second that. (i'm down to two and a half vw's) but don't get rid of all of 
them, you'll regret that as you have twice before.

I'd keep the ones you enjoy the most (buses, of course). Sell the ones you can

Or, just give 'em all to me! (some o' that tongue in cheek stuff)

I have a question for the list and 
since my tongue-and-cheek seems to be a miss on some folks I 
want to point out that I'm being serious here. 

Recently I've been thinking of pulling back out of the 
VW scene completely. Some of this is philosophy some of 
this is pragmatic reality. I've gone 

though this phase now three times in my life. First get 
VWs, then get out of VWs. Then get more VWs then get out 
of them. I'm in the third cycle now. 
I have 7 bussen, er station wagons, type 2s.. During 
the second cycle I was once accused of running a junk yard 
by my local constabulary. But that's another story.. 

2 type 3s (Robb, you're right they're a curse) one 
bug... er um zwitter, and a 61 vert project that's been 
in that state for over 10 years. 

So, here's my point. Do you think it's time to 
move on? Get another hobby? I can't enjoy all of 
them and I don't have my own Smithsonian Wing awaiting 

my collection... My initial thought is keep between one 
to three of them and just enjoy those and sell the rest. 

What would you do? Seriously?
