volkswagen bus

i loves me a good volkswagen bus. i spied this one tootling down interstate 5 with a sticker in the window proclaiming “0-60 in 11 minutes”. it was piloted by a young lad who looked not a day past 19 and every bit a character. i remember my friend steve lodefink had a volkswagen bus in college…. t’was in sweet condition and i believe it was a ’76 in two-tone cream yellow and white. i also recall him telling a tale of how he fell asleep at the wheel and the bus flipped over on its side and skidded that way for 100 yards coming to a rest in jackpot nevada. luckily ‘old fink emerged with nary a scratch. magic bus.

    Ah, the bus….. mine was a 74. That bus had what seemed to be a stronger than normal motor. Great power for a bus. I had just put new tires on that thing before leaving on that ill-fated journey that left me in Jackpot.

    can you go into more detail exactly what happened, the physics of the crash and if it really did slide 100 yards on its side ?
