San Diego Surfer Short Bus

10 07 2012

Here is a bus a friend spotted in May in San Diego. Looks like the middle section of a T2a has been cut out and the rest welded back together again. Massive rust at the upper front, below the windscreen, in places where they would never rust in Germany (here they die from the lower edges upwards, from the salt on the roads in the winter months). A bit of a rat look, the rusty front combined with shiny new alloy wheels. Thanks to Oliver for the photos! The bus belongs to Hodad’s burger restaurant in San Diego, and the link shows another cool shot of the bus, with its owner. For a another unusual shortened bus, check out the web site of VW Short Bus: A 1966 split-window, shortened not by the length of a sliding door of a T2 but by about half a meter, the width of one side cargo door of a T1.
