The 1967 VW Microbus, or Type 2, or transporter, or kombi, or samba, or splitty… will put a smile on just about everyone's face. For many, it's an icon. A symbol that represents an era, a movement, or part of their childhood. Everyone knows the Bus, but what is it like to drive? Well, stick with me and find out!
Thank you Royal on the Eastside for loaning me the bus used in this review!

    What a beauty! I thought we were going to get an example of how the crumple zone worked when you went through five stop signs in a row.

    This bus needs to be sorted out. The steering wheel isn't even set to center. I'm sure this bus needs some work to be able to get a real world opinion on how these vehicles work. I have one and it is solid for the time.

    I have a 63 and 67 bus and you can lock the front doors from the inside. You just push the door handle in the opposite direction you do to open the door.

    Enjoyed your video ! I am always banging my head on my lowered bus (I have a stock one too)...90 and roasting, imagine not having safari's ? It was just 80 and I was cooking in it, stop lights were killer....going to order safaris soon...

    Hey, my steering would go a full 90 degrees !! 15 mph in the neighborhood was freakin scary, so I replaced the center link..harbor freight tool to pop it off, I cranked all the way down, and nothing, I said, "God help me", and BOOM, it popped off. Big improvement. Just likes to run 50 mph....

    The 67 likes to go 50 mph, teh speedo stopped but as we came to a construction zone it flashed out 48 mph !!! FFS, going to put a larger engine in it, you are a hazard on any major road going this damn slow. Lost my tail lights so, had to get off the road on one of my trips...50, in the dark, what could go wrong with that ?

    59 miles per hour on flat ground for the 1.5l, but it depends on what engine you have, this one could get over sixty because it had the 1600 engine.

    I purchased one when I turned 40 and I have never had so much attention from others while driving it or filling it up pump. I even had someone follow me home one night to get a picture with it.
