A chap I know in local VW circles approached me with a proposal yesterday. He has a Barkas B1000 bus lying up at the house. It served as a pirate radio station in Berlin before the wall came down. He has no papers, no log book, no German registration documents of any sort. Ran when parked. No rust (apparently, I haven't seen any photos yet), and it's in a shed, but he needs to make room for a load of wood he's just after cutting. He had a fairly major heart atack a couple of years ago, and hasn't done anything with the bus since then. It's mine to take away, but he'd want a few quid if I got it back on the road and sold. I told him I'd think about it, and spread the word. I'd want my head examined, wouldn't I? Is it possible to get the German registration documents from the chassis number? Where would I get the chassis number, and who would I send it to?
