Today I met with Richard at R Lindwall International Automotive. I found Richard online a couple of months back when I was looking for VW experts in the Atlanta area. He helped me figure out a rough ballpark figure for what it would cost to buy a van and outfit it for the Crusade. I knew he was my man when he didn't even blink when I said, "I own an art gallery and know nothing about cars. I want to buy an old VW van, build shelves inside for art, and drive around the country on a 10-week tour." I think Richards are hard to come by. He called me last week to say he had an old bus in his shop that he is fixing up for a customer and if I wanted, I should come by to look inside and get an idea for size. I would have driven away in this one today if I could. Such a beauty.
