did some redneck rust repair to the floor of the van. There had been some threaded insert put in to the floor, and some one, somewhere apparently went bruce banner on whatever was bolted to the floor and pulled them clear out. this allowed water to get under the rubber floor mat, which allowed rust to do it's thing. I knew those older bike plates would come in handy some day!

VW Doubleback, looks like they are gonna make it.

----

Few automakers do camper vans quite so well as Volkswagen. From factory additions to aftermarket conversions, models like the Transporter seem perfect for on-the-go living. Now a company in the UK has taken the camper conversion one step further with the Doubleback. In addition to a large pop-up roof tent, the creation boasts an expandable aft section than can increase the vehicle's length by an additional 6.5 feet. The conversion is said to add just 286 pounds to the Transporter, and the mechanism expands in under 45 seconds to nearly double living space. Unfortunately, you'll be splitting all that extra room between you and only one other friend. The swap nixes all but the front two seats.

If this all sounds familiar, it certainly should. We first caught a glimpse of the Doubleback a month ago, but the company has released a few videos showing exactly how the conversion works here in the real world. With a load rating of 1,323 pounds with the legs extended, the structure is engineered to sleep even the biggest boned campers out there. Unfortunately, snagging one will cost you. Look to spend somewhere in the neighborhood of $87,975 for the Doubleback if you like what you see. Scroll below to check out the videos for yourself.

Three headrests for 'you and only one other friend'?

I'd take the minibus they'll never build instead of this...

All of the doubleback pics are on perfectly flat ground. I wonder why.

There is a 1977 Dodge street van in my neighbourhood that I've been lusting over for the last ten years. Visor, his 'n her's sunroofs, lip spoiler, fender flares, rebuilt 318 and trans with headers and straight pipes. Body is good, black paint. The thing has never seen winter in the time I've been here(10+ years). Talked to the guy; its for sale. My timing sucks; I blew my toy fund on a CB 750s three weeks ago.

Ugh, the bike I've wanted since I was kid or the van I wanted since I was a kid.

I'll see if I can get some pics before it sells.

Pardon the shite photos from my cell;









Only way this thing could by cooler is with a set of zoomies or side pipes. Definatley needs some Cragar's, I'm not feeling them rims. Interior was just gutted of an old interior, just two seats, a blank slate. Guy wants $2K OBO. SWMBO has put the kybosh on this. I'm gonna go ride my new to me 750s and try to forget about this thing one block over.
