the project

why project:t3
we, the team of project:t3, are all with the german red cross in northern germany. traditionally there are a lot of old cars located in the location groups of the red cross in germany. especially there are a lot of old volkswagen type 2 busses. most of the cars are not treated very well, because they get driven by many different people. as well as our bus has many small damages, but the main substance of the vehicle is good. our purpose is to sustain our volkswagen for the future.
