I’m not sure what exactly is going on with this Vanagon but it appears to be a mid 1980’s high top with an extra section up front for a bed. It looks a little odd because the added section is so much wider than the rest of the van. The owner also seems to have painted the wheels the same color as the van. Interesting choice!


There is a lot to love about this orange and black Westy Syncro. In terms of the color, I love the way they blacked out the area around the windows. It matches the wheels and front grill and provides a nice contrast to the orange exterior of the van. This van looks ready for off road exploration with all the front grill protection and bull bar. The oversize tires complete the van.


This Gatebil Magazine themed van reminds me of the old yellow cabs in NYC. This one looks a lot better than any yellow taxi I’ve ever seen, but it could be called the Yellow Cab Vanagon. Click through for another pic.




This Vanagon is awesome. The paint job, the wheels, the dropped look. It’s all just plain awesome! The gold headlights? Not so much, but the rest of it is awesomeness! I found this on the OhSoRetro Instagram account. Go check them out.


I love Vanagons who have the customized grill “eyelid.” I don’t know what the official name of it is, but I call it the eyelid. Usually, people paint them the same color as the van. This guy decided to go the stainless route and it looks great. I believe these eyelids were popular in Europe, but never made it to the US. I’ve tried to buy one in the past, but I haven’t been able to locate a source.

UPDATE: This piece is apparently called an “eyebrow.”



Don’t you just love the side window hack? We have seen this hack before, but this is the largest window I have seen so far. Click through to see this syncro in action.


Every once in awhile we run across a serious expedition vehicle. This Syncro definitely falls into that category. She isn’t polished and clean, but just look at her. She’s ready for a serious expedition. I think she even has a toilet. Click through for more pics.


This Syncro looks brand new! Everything on her looks new. There is so much to love about this van it’s hard to know where to begin. Check out those tires and the gorgeous paint job. What about the entire front of the van? She’s ready for a serious expedition.



This is a unique, and very interesting, T25 camper that was recently for sale in Manchester, England. Check out the top. The luggage rack is in the rear. This guy has several accessories on this van including a sun visor, some kind of antenna (TV?), awning, mud flaps, and what appears to be steel running rods. If you look closely you can see the door handles are also painted red along with the bumpers. This is a unique camper and someone was lucky to find it. Check out the listing on GumTree.


This Syncro is shown at the Volkswagen Club of Pakistan. Someone named Rehan Bhai apparently owns this VW Syncro T3. It has the most interesting front ornament I’ve ever seen. It appears to be a set of bull horns. You can see a bar bolted into the front of the van which supports the bull horns. It also includes a net of some kind. I have no idea what the net is for, but it’s an interesting ornament for sure.
