This orange crew cab looks so sleek, it’s crazy. I couldn’t figure out why it looked so different but then I realized they completely re-did the body. It looks like a unibody designed truck. No lines, no gaps, just all body. AND, they left off the door handles. Even the bumper looks like part of the body. Of course, they also sport after market wheels, new rear brake lights, and painted front grill. Click through to see several more pics of this beauty.


This otherwise average looking Syncro has a massive bullbar installed on the front bumper. It doesn’t appear like this van is used in the dense forrest, but perhaps they owner just likes the look.



We have seen several Vanagon trailers where the owner cuts off a chunk of the front end and uses the rest of the van as a trailer. What would happen if someone used the entire van as the trailer? Here you have it. This van showed up at several European shows a few years ago. It looks like they have removed the front wheels to use the entire van as the trailer.

This VW Doka double cab reminds me of coffee creamer. Although I’m not fond of the cream color, there is a lot to like about the van. The roof mounted horn, semi-truck side mirrors, and rain guards are just the start. The custom bed cover is very nice and she has a sun roof. Click through for more.

This 1984 Doka looks like it’s been neglected, but still looks great. After 100,000 miles She just needs a little TLC. She has been lowered and has new seats and custom goodies on the inside so have a look.


We’ve seen Vanagon ambulances before. This one comes from Brussels Belgium. It is a fully loaded ambulance that has an original odometer reading of just 54.340 Km. Click through to see the interior.


There is a lot to love about this 1990 VW T3 1.9 TDI. Are the wheels crazy or what? Talk about low profile tires. This is the second Vanagon I’ve spotted with orange wheels and they are just the beginning when it comes to this van. Click through for many more pics.

We have seen a lot of high top Vanagons floating around, but what about a high top pop top? I haven’t seen one of these in the US, but they are apparently popular in Europe. Now you don’t have to choose between a high top, or a pop top. Just get both. Click through for one more.



I found a couple of nice hacks by Samba user Keyport Westy today. The dash on this 1986 Westy has been enhanced and is awesome! The wood panel ties in with the steering wheel and the painted surfaces just look fantastic. Wait until you see the matching door panel.
