My husband's first vehicle ever was one of these vintage double cab, split windshield VW trucks. I think he said his dad had to co-sign for it. He had a SAAB when I met him, so I don't know what became of the old odd beastie. I know he drove it from CA to work on a sheep ranch in Idaho when he was like 19. I like to think someone has fixed it up and that it is somewhere in cherry condition, like this one that Michael from Paris came across in someone's Capitol Hill driveway. I later saw it and also snapped a shot of it, cuz I hadn't realized after seeing his via the little screen on the back of his camera that it was a truck rather than a bus. "Long may you run. . ."
