Caleb Kraft from HaD built an old skool intercom system for his VW bus out of two old phones. His video, above, shows how you can do it too.

    Just in case the bus wasn’t enough of a death trap before.

    Yep, the bus is dangerous. I did note however that I don’t use the phone up front while driving. The passenger does. When you drive these beasts, you keep both hands on the task of keeping it on the road. My kids actually love it and it works great!

    Also, I’m willing to bet “old skull” was a typo that his computer autocorrected for him. It was probably supposed to be “old school”.

    This is an idea very much likely to be used in one of Pimp My Ride program.

    I guess you could have used the free pair of wires to hook up a bell or buzzer? It would save the screaming “Get on the phone! I can’t hear you!”
