I can’t think of too many vans with better front protection than this guy. The otherwise stock looking Vanagon appears to be able to mow down a forest full of trees!


Most Westy owners who carry bikes place them on the rear of the van. This Westy owner prefers the front bumper for his bikes. TheSamba user, a1fa , has a Yakima Bike Rack mounted on the front bumper instead of the back. He also has Yakima Box up top. Click through for another look at hi van.

Check out this custom console for the Vanagon cockpit. It is full of gauges, switches, and lights, and is perfect for the Vanagon enthusiast. Although the picture is cut off, it looks like the console contains a cup holder at the bottom.

I love when Vanagon owners figure out a way to customize their vans. This Vanagon owner took some scrap wood and material and created a very nice center console.
