Eric's 82 Vanagon called the "SPUD"


Always Under Construction

Welcome to the Fischer Volkswagen Odyssey. Eric has been a devoted G.M. guy all his life until recently. Karen had come across a mint 1982 Vanagon at our local dealership. We took one test drive and bought it on the spot. What we did not realize was that to own a great bus like this, meant that you had to become a backyard mechanic real fast! We have had to make several major repairs on the bus. Since I am a dedicated office boy, skinned knuckles and bleeding fingernails were something I never figured would be inflicted on me! Luckily, here in Orangeville and surrounding area are some great fellow owners who are more than ready to lend a hand, or advice. They will make owning this beauty a lot easier. So far, I have had to change the oil twice, redo the push rod tube seals, and replace the valve cover gaskets. I have also spent a small fortune on Ebay for various parts, manuals and other stuff.

So, this is our story.
