The Other Woodstock

The vehicle you choose to drive is the result of a number of different factors: budget, utility, specifications, and style all add twists to the decision making road that is car buying. It can be argued that identity is also a large part of car buying as well – ask any middle aged guy with a Corvette trying to hold onto the last vestiges of youth. What we have here is a van with an identity crisis, spotted in Woodstock, Virginia this van clearly headed the wrong way when looking for the concert, man.

Heading to the Campsite

White T4 camper van barreling down the road.

It’s difficult to find a modern vehicle that allows such flexibility in use – a van that can not only move many adults from one place to another, but also provide a comfortable place to stay at night is a rarity for today’s car-buyer. This wonderful example of a T4 camper is decked out with all the goodies – a leaky pop-top roof, connectors for all your campsite amenities, and probably some kind of marijuana-burning device inside. Although not as stylish as its more iconic predecessors, this van still represents what the originals stood for: fun, and driving pleasure.

Base Model

What we have here is a fine example of a 1980s Transporter. Painted with a similar theme to a deli-paper-coffee-cup, this van is just about as exciting. As you can see, this is not a special camper model, just a plain-jane people mover, no curtains, beds, people, dogs, or plants living inside, which I guess is kinda unique in its own way, especially for one of these vans…
