This may look like a tenuous attempt to link today’s post to the spooky festival in which we’re blogging it, but it was planned all along. Definitely.
Anyway, this gorgeous Type 2 Volkswagen Transporter Bus is the work of Master MOCer Sheepo, who has (much like Volkswagen themselves) repurposed his previous Beetle chassis for a whole new job. Underneath the wonderfully recreated Technic bodywork there’s a choice of remote control drive or a ‘manual’ variation with working drum brakes, steering, 4+R gearbox, suspension and the famous flat-4 engine.
So what’s so spooky about it? Well firstly, any car that can drive itself is up to no good, and secondly, would you ever get in one of these if it stopped to pick you up after your car had broken down at the side of the road? Exactly. Sheepo’s Lego version even has doors that lock too…
You can see more of the Volkswagen Bus on Eurobricks, at Sheepo’s own website, or via the YouTube video below.
