Dark green Westy with a roof box, rolling south on I-81 past JMU (Harrisonburg) in the rain yesterday. Saw it as I stepped out of the rec center!

That's some weird post hippie spray paint look " not" alike. Reminds me of a engineer whom wants to be "Born to wild", but really can't just cut lose from mathmatical precision ...
Then again ,what do I know... its fun to see expresion via vanagon.

I'd rather see it from one of my other cars, not from my Vanagon.

When Vanagon friends say: "I saw a Vanagon covered with hippy stuff written all over it!" Sometimes they're nutcases, sometimes look like social media posers, but could be just regular Vanagon folks having some fun! Wink

When Non-Vanagon friends say: "I saw a Vanagon covered with hippy stuff written all over it", they're implying a connection to me, because of my Vanagon. So I ask, "are you sure it wasn't a Chevy Astro van? They do look similar."

This is all neither here nor there.

"The Daily Show with Trevor Noah" had a Westy in the background portraying the owner as a pedo the other night...damn! Not a good spotting!

In the 'hood. I've known about the van for a while, a Weekender that I've seen being driven only a few times in the six years we've lived here. That garage is seldom open.
