We previously named a Vanagon the junk yard dog, but this one seems to fit the bill even more. This Syncro sports the kind of rustic body work that gives it character. The large wheels and tires are just the beginning on this one. Check out the front grill protection. And what about that roof rack with the driving lights attached. This van would actually look worse with a new paint job. The aesthetic definitely screams junk yard dog!


Here is another example of the front bike rack for the Vanagon. It sells for about $300 plus shipping and is offered by someone named Gary Lee. Click through for another pic and hit the source link below to visit his website.


We have seen several of these safari or zebra Vanagon before and this one is just as interesting. Although it appears to have a pop top, it is hard to tell whether it has a full kitchen. I don’t see the standard cabinets that most campers include. Perhaps this one just has a fancy paint job.


I’m not sure what this thing is, but it looks like they took a page from those caterpillar or accordion busses. It appears to be two high top Vanagon campers put together, with the rear being more of a trailer that extends the front van. They are carrying a minibike on the front bumper, and they appear to have jalousies. Interesting ride!


If you have a 1980 – 1991 Vanagon with a worn shifter boot you’re in luck. TMI sells these in multiple colors and they look great. For $79.99 you can’t go wrong. Check it out at the source link below.


This 1989 Ragtop Syncro is awesome! Everything about it screams details. Check out the blacked out wheels, or the black ragtop. And have a look at the bed. This thing is perfect!


This 1987 Vanagon turned truck is currently listed for sale on Craigslist. It is located on the Big Island of Hawaii and it looks like crazy conversion. Someone took a Wolfsburg Edition with reverse seats and chopped it up into a truck. Anyone with a Wolfburg or Carat will recognize what is going on despite the poor angle of the pictures. Click through for more.



If you would like to find a new use for those Vanagon jump seats, check out Rocky Mountain Westy’s jump seat adapter. The kit turns your Vanagon Wolfsburg, Weekender, or Carat’s jump seats into a usable chair outside the van for camping, fishing, soccer games, etc. These Vanagon reverse seats were useless once you removed them from the van, until now.

Rocky Mountain Westy sells their kit for $149.95, and that’s a pretty good deal. Check out the source link below to order yours now.


It looks like someone started an ambitious Vanagon conversion, but gave up. This van was apparently listed as abandoned. Perhaps whoever started this conversion got in over his head.


User AndyBees at the TDI Club forums posted this picture of a new cluster. Awesome!
