If you're a fan of vintage Japanese cars, be sure to check out Nissan's online heritage site. There are tons of vintage Nissan pics and specs going all the way back to the 1920s. Each featured car or truck has relevant specs and a little "detail" tab that gives some background on that specific car.
The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.
Classic Car Overview
FOR SALE: Completely restored 1969 VW Bug $25,000
This barn find has been a project for several years. Towed it home, stripped it clean and the project began. Everything has been replaced, rebuilt or restored. This 1969 VW Bug has had the entire interior, exterior, motor, wheels and tires, brakes, you name..Done, and all by professionals. I have listed the various business names so you can yelp them if you like and see that they all have great reviews. I am not handy, nor a mechanic so all of the restoration work was done by professionals. Why are we selling it? I built this car for my son (he is 13 years old now) and now that we've moved to the country he has a Jeep or 4x4 in mind as his first car. This car is a looker, runs tip top, and is super clean inside and out. Daily Driver Ready
