Some people just take hacking the Vanagon to the extreme. Check out this monster Syncro expedition that is currently up for sale at the Samba. It’s a gorgeous load of Vanagon insanity. It comes with a high top and so many custom options it’s impossible to list them all. How much will it set you back? Oh, only $48,000.
