Saw this while cruising ma hometown



And, yes, the trailer, in which you could put a Vanagon in, was hitched to the van.

I'll stop for a closer look next time.

Custom windows too. Wow. That's is an impressive amount of work. That whole van is a ball of something.

That on the island VicVan? I'd like to take a closer look too...

I'd call that a MAD MAX van. But its far to clean and nicely done. I thought my wheels were big at 18" those must be 20". See if you can get a peek at the engine that's powering that beast.

That's a lot of work to achieve something so ugly.

Looks like someone had a spare front clip from a Daimler SP250 that he didn't know what to do with. "What the hell, I'll just stick the damn thing here."

Hey, somebody else here knows what an SP250 is!! :shock:
I was thinking it might be the nose off a VW based kit car: Aztec, Puma or whatever.

A couple weeks ago we took the ferry to Lopez, and on the way to the island we were directly behind a mid-80's Adventurewagen, and on the way back we were right next to an early Westfalia. Neither of them seemed too interested in our Eurovan.

One for you Zeitgeist. I think I have only taken a pic of one and it was a Syncro Eurovan on Hwy 16 years ago. A coworker sent me this one just now.

So many caption opportunities here....

I like what the Hound in charge of the shifter is saying... "I need a triple butterberger Pops!"

jimf909 Sat Aug 29, 2020 10:07 pm

"I thought you changed the fuel lines!"

Not the best effort but that's what came to mind...

campism Sun Aug 30, 2020 9:22 am

A guy with a clean and running van can't really complain. He's probably thinking, "When will something go wrong? I'm sooo BORED!!"

Here's the audio of the conversation that resulted in his exasperated expression:

Don’t see too many out here on Martha’s Vineyard. Saw this well kept van the other day in Aquinnah checking out the scenery.
