Did not have my camera at the ready this afternoon in the rain and missed the shot of an Assuan Brown Westy with what looked like the roof basket from a tintop. Mere moments later--and who could have foreseen this--I missed a SECOND Assuan Brown Westy with an awning.

Wanted to grab a pic but the owner looked like they would rather not have the attention, silver westy unloading stuff the dump in western Maine yesterday. Very well-behaved and sweet black dog (lab or mix) hanging out in the back seat. Love seeing VWs being put to work:).

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.

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!!"

"I thought you changed the fuel lines!"

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

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

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.

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.
