Forgotten Volkswagen Camper Van LIVES AGAIN !!!!!!! VW Bus
We pulled this 1979 Volkswagen Camper out of a shop where it had been
sitting since 1997. The motor was partially installed but needed to be
finished. Tires were shot and the interior was a mess. We spent the
better part of 2 weeks cleaning, polishing and replacing anything that
needed to be fixed. It was a team effort and couldn't have got it done
without the help of my amazing wife and daughters. Big thanks to Allan of
Southeast Idaho Motors for helping with some mechanical issues and for the
parts he donated to the project. If you need VW Service in the Southeast
Idaho or Jackson Hole area give him a call at (801)808-9763 for all your
Aircooled VW needs. If you have an old Volkswagen you want to sell give us
a call today at (208)200-6053. Thanks Jeremy at Skeeters Auto Sales.

Ford Transit Custom van review

More than two million Ford Transits have been sold since the original first
appear in 1965. However, for its latest model it has split the range in two
and this Transit Custom is the midsized model.
You can get it in two body lengths, a double cab with a second row of seats
and a nine-seater mini bus. There will also be a high roof version added to
the range in 2014. However, there is no tipper model.
One of the great things with the Transit Custom is that even on short wheel
base versions you can fit three Euro pallets in - you can't do that on all
mid-sized vans. Also if you need to carry longer loads look -- you have a
through hatch in the bulkhead. This means you can carry items up to 3
meters long. There's also tie down rings in the floor are lower walls.
What's not so good is that you don't get half wood paneling as standard
like on some of its rivals. You can get it as an option though, and what's
also useful is the optional super bright load bay lighting which helps when
you are working in the dark. The load height is low but you can't get an
all wheel drive version.
The Transit Customs payload ranges from 683 to 1484kg. It it has a load bay
volume from 5.9 cubic meters up to 6.8 cubic meters. When the high top
arrives it will have up to 8.29 cubic meters though this still less than
the equivalent VW Transporter
Inside the Transit Customs cab looks more like what you'd expect from a car
not a van. In fact the dash design resembles that of a Ford Focus. However,
the plastics aren't as plush but then they should be harder wearing.
Cubbies spaces really impressive with plenty of cup holders, big door bins,
another above the instrument binnacle and storage under the passenger
seats. The only problem is that all models don't get a lockable glovebox as
You can get the Transit Custom with pretty much the same wide range of
equipment you can get on Ford's cars and even the base models get electric
windows and auxiliary in for the stereo. Security is impressive too. You
can unlock the doors individually to prevent thieves from steeling your
cargo when you back is turned while there are two choices of alarm. It's
easy to get comfy in here too as there is an eight way adjustable seat and
four way adjustable steering wheel.
You can get the transit Custom with a choice of three 2.2-litre diesel
engines a 100hp, 125 and 155hp version. They drive the front wheels via a
slick six speed manual gearbox and are smooth, punchy and economical
capable of between 39-42mpg
A super efficient Econetic version of the 100hp engine, equipped with stop
start technology, improve aerodynamics and brake energy regeneration can do
up to 46.3mpg and emits just 162g/km of CO2 -- making it one of the
cleanest vans in the business.
Thanks to light steering, comfy ride, grippy handling and good visibility
the Transit Custom is one of the best vans to drive. It helps that all
models come with a full-length bulk head which helps noise down.
This also improves safety by separating you from your cargo. In fact the
Transport Custom is the first van to be awarded a full five star Euro NCAP
Safety rating. What's more it comes with ESP anti skid control and as
system which will warn you if it things you are loosing concentration
behind the wheel. There's also blind spot and lane departure warning on the
options list while hill hold control is standard to help prevent you
rolling back on a slope.
Now I hope you are concentrating right now because this bit is really
important. Ford has set the Transit Custom's service intervals at a
market-leading two years or 30,000 miles to help keep the running cost
down. What's more it's covered by a three-year/100,000-mile warranty.
So, overall, what's the verdict on the Ford Transit Custom? Well it's good
to drive, all models can take three pallets and it's very safe. However
problems include no wood paneling as standard, you can't get it with a
lockable glovebox and there's no all-wheel drive version. Despite this
though we still think the Transit Custom is the best all-round van on the
market. And that's why we have named it the Auto Express Van of the Year
