It's on a bus pan... I sure hope that donor bus was really messed up, as those things are unibody.

Having said that, it does have quite a bit of dorky charm.

I have the plans to build one of these. The builder is supposed to build a tube frame on the pan to reinforce it.

I wish I'd known about these things 10 years ago... I had 2 VW buses that could have been converted.

Wait- I said I have the plans to build one, not that I was planning to build one. I just don't fit between the driver's seat and the steering wheel of a VW bus. Maybe a Vanagon, but not a TypeII/Transporter. I like the Pheonix as well.

But for now I am sticking to my Ford.
