Van, storage, what’s the difference?

So this wonderful vehicle/storage closet was found up in beautiful Lake Placid, NY. Parked (or abandoned) behind some nice old houses, this van was filled with a bunch of junk, including the usual Volkswagen clothing collection, various crates of magazines, and enough blankets for a hospital. At least the kitchen was still in OK shape…

Quo Vadis!

What we have here is a rather nice looking Wolfsburg Edition Vanagon – a nice relic from the 80’s, when music was good and cars were square. This van was especially nice, with an interior that was actually clean! No one is running their patchouli oil business out of this van – and they shouldn’t be – as this is a venerable Wolfsburg Edition! The Wolfsburg was upgraded with larger, more square (like this van needs that!) bumpers, alloy wheels and extra body trim (more stuff that will fall off!). An interesting note: Only Volkswagens that have the special Wolfsburg Edition circular badge are true Wolfsburgs, some North American cars have a square “castle” or “wolf” badge that is there only to cover the hole where the euro-spec side marker lights would go!
