The Art And Restoration Inside Vintage VW's

More Flower Power To You VW!The art and restoration of Vintage VW's- So many cool ideas!

Anyone who knows me, knows I love VW's and events that display them! Whether it's the  VW Transport Fest in Boston,  Busses and Balloons in New Mexico or The VDub Hippiefest in Tarpon Springs, one thing is apparent, and that is, that every one of these old VW's has been saved from a landfill.
At every old car show you see vehicles in every stage of transformation, from totally reconditioned to original shabby chic. 
I love that people have found and rescued many of them and very creatively given them a new life. 

Oh, and did I say, that the VW's are fun and make you smile?  Just think of Fillmore, the 1960 VW Bus, in the movie Cars. 
Vw owners are particularly creative with their restorations. Partly because it's a playful car and partly because the parts are often hard to come by, so they have to be!   Here are some unique upcycle ideas that will not only bring you back in time, but put a smile on your face.  You may even  find some of them useful.

VW Interiors: Fun or funky,  happy faces or peace symbols. upcycle or recycle,  anything goes.
