Not a fan of the VW bus, but I wouldn't mind driving one of those around town.

Oh YEA! I presume Air Cooled is a slight advantage in those climes. One less fluid to freeze?

"The 1966 T1 panel van body is adorned with matching snowboarder or waterskiier (depending on the season/venue) murals on both sides, and the big VW badge on the front has been removed and replaced by the club’s logo. The front doors are welded shut – cabin access is now through the sliding rear door on the passenger side – and the stock wheel wells have been filled in. They aren’t necessary anymore because this thing isn’t riding on wheels anymore; instead, the Bulli body has been placed on the chassis of a 1960 Bombardier B01 Spurgrat snowcat. A vintage Ford of Germany Taunus V4 sends power to the left and right tracks via a transmission system that allows the van to move forward, backward, and spin on its own axis."
