Groovy Man!

Some folks are devoted to old VW vans. 
It defies logic but I suspect most cases can be traced to mental illness or a death wish.
On this block there were two of #%*! things.
And speaking of blocks ...
… this is one of the few remaining roadways paved with granite setts.


Hamilton St. between Hastings and Pender.

So Wayne has no use for Volkswagen vans. One good thing about it is that happy face on the front looks like me.

Hey--I love VW vans and I'm not crazy nor do I have a death wish! I wanted to (and did) road trip, but alas, not in a VW camper.

I'm with you Wayne - and they're even worse when covered in all that hippie sh**!

I love VW vans. We used to have a Westphalia and we went everywhere in it. I wished I had another one, and you can put all your camera gear in it. the owner probably lives in it.

I realized I might be walking into a minefield with this one.

Almost anyone I ever knew who owned one of these managed to roll it over or had it blown into the ditch or into on-coming traffic in a crosswind. Newer Vanagons are probably a lot safer.

That looks like one Happy Camper to me!

My dad had 2 of them when I was a kid - I loved them!

CaT, that is very interesting. Here is a shot I took in NYC this summer. Same license number. :-)

Pat, I liked them when I was a kid too. Did you see the movie Alice's Restaurant?
