We drive a car that runs on used vegetable oil and we built a straw bale house... we thought this might be a fun way to document our adventures and maybe, in turn, help others who decide to give it a go as well.
Note: If you are interested in reading about the building of our straw bale house check out the blog archive (on the right side a little ways down) from 2008- when we began our research and 2009- when we actually constructed the house.
7 Years ago we bought are first VW. Since then I have taken on the task of saving as many as I could from Junk Yards to fields. Some would get full rebuilds with new engines and paint. Others would be sold as shells for someone to start their own VW rebuild, moreover some would be turned into grease cars to travel the US. To date I have saved over 20 VW's from either being crushed or parted out and the number is still rising!
