I used to have me one of those old Econolines, wish I still did, I'd make it a toad. The one in the pic is obviously air-bagged. You'd inflate the bags to drive it.

I sure hope so - else it would never make it down my road.....

I've seen a couple VW buses made into small TTs. Real cute, especially towed by a VW van.

They do look interesting, but the real deal is a viable option too (we use a '75 Westfalia - all original). I can't imagine towing anything in one though, not with the original engine. I mean, these were built when 55 was the speed limit and my top end is something on the order of 62mph.

The beauty of those little cabover Econolines is that you can drop in a 289 or 302 and be good to go.

X2, air it up for driving. Very cool having the van and trailer both air bag suspension.
