Nope! That's an extension ladder truck with swiveling base, it belongs to and was restored by Bob from BBT in Belgium. I have had the honor of driving that very ladder truck many times to either Bad Camberg or Hessisch-Oldendorf Vintage weekends and setting the ladder up for display. Not many of those left anywhere! Such a cool vehicle, and surprisingly it is NOT a handful to drive as you might imagine! It cruises along very nicely on the Autobahn.

Thanks Bob!

Beautiful photos of the v80 I wish mine was a v80 they have more outward reach and much higher lift. Mine is a v60 but the oldest know of right now it is a 62

Can we get some pictures of that crazy side loader with the ramp? And while I don’t think it was stock VW, I love the solo seat “plumber’s truck”.

If we are referring to Kombis as commercial vehicles, then this is the only one known to exist:

I love working split windows, this thread is like PornHub to me haha. There's just something about them being lightweight and somewhat impractical in hindsight. But you know they're awesome and just like everyone else in this thread; we love them

Do you think that thing is rear wheel steering, or articulated? Also, what is that thing?

That's not a VW. It looks like a Tempo Matador to me.
