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.

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!! Shocked
I was thinking it might be the nose off a VW based kit car: Aztec, Puma or whatever.

WA


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.

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

"I thought you changed the fuel lines!"

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

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!!"

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.
