Devoted to the restoration and sale of vintage VW cars and VW buses

Hi I'm John Snell, If you'd say I have a bit of a "Thing" for vintage Volkswagens you'd be right on the money - I'm guessing since you are here you too enjoy a classic VW now and then as well. I have been restoring and selling vintage cars including Volkswagen Buses, VW Beetles, Camper Vans, Porsches, and other VW cars since 1992. My uncle, Jerry Coffin, owner of J.A.C. Auto in Anoka, Minnesota got me started at a young age and taught me much of what I know today about restoring vintage Volkswagens. Stop on in enjoy some classic Volkswagens and buy your next Vintage VW Beetle or Bus from Vintage VW Cars!


Over the years I have been a mechanic, rust repair guru (self proclaimed), classic car broker and a trustworthy salesperson with the integrity of a saint! These days I am focusing pretty much exclusively on buying and selling classic cars (or brokering the sale for you). Stop by often to check out my selection of VW Buses and Beetles for sale here as well as a whole range of classic cars at my classic car selling business Sunset Classics (you'll see mention of it sprinkled throught this site).

I currently have the following Classic Volkswagens and Porsche for sale:
