This is the ultimate beach Vanagon with a gorgeous theme. What makes this one special is the Tiki Bar in the rear of the van. If you look closely you will see the bar. It also features a custom slide out drawer. Awesome. Add the wooding roof rack, side ladder, and bamboo interior and you’ve got yourself the ultimate beach vehicle. Is this one awesome or what?


Check out this T3 Syncro army truck. It would look like a regular work truck, except it has side panels that flip up to reveal some kind of radio equipment in the back. It has oversized tires and a serious hitch on the bumper. The license plate says “army” but I don’t know what country it is from. Very cool!


There’s not much to say about this one. It’s obviously an A Team themed Vanagon. It has a nice red spoiler on the roof, and the stripe goes down over the window. Check out those wide wheels! Who wouldn’t want one of these bad boys?

This rustic interior out of a 1980 VW Vanagon caught my eye. The kitchen actually extends out quite a bit from the wall as compared to other Westys. It doesn’t look like the best use of space, but it is interesting. Click through for a picture of the van’s exterior.

This rusty old VW T25 is entitled “rat look” over at The Samba. It has a unique antique look to it, but what catches my eye is the front ladder. I don’t think I’ve seen a Vanagon with a ladder going up the front before. The ladder isn’t the only unique addition to this van. The eyelids over the headlights, body kit, rear port hold, and jalousie windows are a few more interesting hacks on “Aunt Fanny’s” van. She also has truck style side view mirrors, and look at that horn!

I ran across this crazy shot on Flickr, and then I thought maybe it isn’t so crazy. If you could extend your van and turn it into a tank, wouldn’t you? Of course you would.


Check out this Vanagon food truck. Retro Party Drinks is a company that offers its van for parties, weddings, or other gatherings in its early 1980’s conversion truck. Aside from the paint job and special rear cab, the truck has extra wide side mirrors to get around that extra large rear. The company serves classic cocktails, lemonade, punch, wine or champagne at your special event. Too bad someone hasn’t created one of these in the states. This one is in the Netherlands.

This is one of the highest camper tops I’ve ever seen on a Vanagon. This one has an interesting paint job and nice painted bumpers, but the wheels are weird. Click through for another pic.

If you are interested in a new look to your instrument cluster, you can check out this backlit upgrade kit. Campervanculture.com sells this upgrade kit for about $88 US. The problem is they are in the UK so you will have to see if they can get it over to you. They’re sold out at the moment, but promise to have more of these in stock soon.

I found this nice Van on the Vanagon Junkies Facebook page. The eyebrow adds a lot to the front of this van, but so do the LED lights under the headlights. Nice touch.
