More photos in slide show

Postby luckham » Fri Feb 03, 2012 4:57 pm

I have added more photos to the slide show: http://www.divemaster.ca/kubvans/index.htm
and am also linking photos to serial numbers of vans on the serial number page of the website as time and information permits.
Ultimately link to the map, but that is a bigger project.
http://www.divemaster.ca/kubvans/kubvan%20serial%20number%20database.htm
There are also some new video's in the video section !!

Thanks to those of you that have donated, it helps !

i read how you have never seen a model 100 over 300...

below my vin number on mine, which is 0370 it is a 120..

so i am thinking the low floor/rear leaf one is a model 120.. and well i am 370...

the one in the weeds is something like 0357, its blue sticker on window is 1 mo before mine btw.. .. but i cannot rember and due to dirt.. no pic of that vin tag.. one day ill own that one though... :twisted: my mk1 jetta is rottin away and has all the stuff to build that into a dd.. just will require lots of aluminum work.. LOL. now to make its owner sell it to me..

so how many a month did they make is my question.. 13ish away from mine.. an the one in cali is 380 something... that i did the gas conversion on back in 97..

Vin #252 has been fixed and unit # 3 added, now in Florida, came from NY
I have also update the entire table with some better formatting.
The comments above made me look at these numbers more closely and I realize there is one extra digit compared to VW at the date code possibly month ?
I also realized that I fooled myself, "ah grass hopper do not be mislead by facts"
In fact I duplicated the prefix digits before the serial number based on data from similar vin #, so only the last three digits may be accurate, unless you gave me the whole vin #
