Troy Wheeler and I met in 2001 at the Crown Plaza in the infamous parking lot. He and his friends had driven down from Idaho in their buses. Im sure you've seen one of his cars. Troy had been in the bus game for quite some years. His first feature car was on 97 in VW Trends Red & Black Camper called "Summer Fun". After that bus found its way to Japan.

Customer ReviewsSee All
Ya know, when you live out in the middle of Illinois, and there is no VW scene in your town, or even in your county, really none at all, it’s really nice to have Let’s Talk Dubs available to get your VW fix. Bill T does a great job.
This is the pod cast you’re looking for
Bill is an awesome host and has an amazing group of guests that he interviews talking about the world of air cooled Volkswagen. Lots of big name guests of people who have shaped the industry in the early years of VW customizing, to current industry leaders and innovators. Bill also talks to people that are the up and coming industry contributors. Either way you slice it, there is awesome content to learn and listen to. The show also has technical talk about a variety VW items from motors, transmissions, brakes, suspension, bodywork and more. It gives the hardcore VW people great stuff to listen to. This is also a great pod cast for people getting into the hobby and wanting to learn as much as they can about VWs and not be bored out of their minds listening.
Bill is a entertaining host with lots of stories and personal experiences with owning VWs and I find myself laughing out loud while listening.
I especially looking forward to the round table talks Bill has with his brother George- who is also a VW expert. I like listening to George speak about VWs as he approaches the subject from a technical standpoint and takes the time to explain tech work and talks about how he is methodical when working on cars to get it work done factory correct. The dichotomy of listening to Bill explain tech work is very entertaining and you sometimes get the feeling of if it’s not working, get a bigger hammer! Both Bill and George are very relatable while listening and I look forward to episodes when George is on.
I spend a lot of time driving for work and this podcast passes the time quickly. I find myself getting home and parking in my driveway and listening for a few more minutes or waiting for a segment to wrap up before going inside.
Way to go, keep up the great work and I always look forward to new episodes!
I absolutely love this. Showcasing prominent influences in the VW world for all to hear. Keep up the great work!
