If you don’t look too closely you might swear this is another dropped Doka truck. Nope! This is a custom modified air-cooled VW van. The tires look huge on this thing because she’s dropped. All it needs now is the right paint job to make her really stand out.

What in the world is this? It looks like the Mystery Machine without the middle. Nice hack.

guage-setup

Vanagon owners love gauges. We have already seen several gauge placement ideas, but this gauge setup caught my eye. It comes from a 1982 Vanagon previously owned by Rick Gordon. The mount is big, but aimed up at just the right angle for viewing. I’m not sure it would fit a Vanagon with an automatic transmission due to the shifter, but I like the placement. You can find other gauge ideas here. You might also notice an organizer mounted on the dashboard.

If you have a spare $65,000 laying around you can buy this 1987 Vanagon GL Synchro Westfalia called Big Red. Her owners have completely restored her, but it’s time to let her go. It was recently posted on The Samba and she’s a beauty. Click through for more.

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.

If you have the skills and the knowhow, you can turn a $500 used Vanagon from Craigslist into an awesome travel vehicle. Gregoire S. Blachon did just that and documented his build on YouTube. He stripped the van and rebuilt everything from the ground up. Awesome job! Click through for an incredible build video that will make you jealous!

orly

This gorgeous Vanagon has a fresh coat of paint and lots of accessories. I found it in the Vanagon Owners forum on Facebook. The owner, Ton Villano, says the color is called Orly blue. He has a solar panel sitting on his Yakima Sky Box and a South African front grill. Also of interest is a storage box on the back of the van, side ladder, and awning. All he needs now is a set of Go Westy wheels. I love this color!

This 1987 Syncro was recently on the market, but it sold. Somewhere this is a happy new owner out there. This Vanagon has been restored and is in fantastic condition. Everything is clean including the undercarriage. Click through for more pictures and a video walkthrough.

vanagon-school-bus

We all know Vanagon are used for so many different tasks. We have seen Vanagon fire trucks, lunch wagons, dump trucks, ambulances, and more, but this is the first time I have come across a Vanagon school bus. This one has the right colors going on, and check out the signage and extra rear mounted flashing lights. Perfect.
