I ordered my first van, a Volkswagen Vanagon Multivan (similar to the weekender in the US) in summer 1987 and got it delivered in november 1987. I drove this Vanagon for more than 22 years, until I got a Volkswagen Caddy Mk. III on december 9, 2009.

But this Vanagon guided me into the Van-scene over here in Germany, which resulted in my first 1982 G20 in 1991, which was replaced in summer 1995 by a 1986 GMC Vandura 2500 'til summer 1999.
And finally august 2003 the 1989 Highway-Bully show Van.

'61 Corvair 1973. Took out the 85hp motor and put a 110 hp '65 car motor in it. Still wouldn't make it up Pikes Peak, but it did make it to Tiajauna. Then I had to take the motor out in a parking lot in Santee CA to switch the tranny with a Corvair car that was laying on it's side in the same lot. Good 'ol days. Got home with $10 in my pocket, no credit or debit cards in those days.

In 1986 I bought a 73 Volkswagen Westphalia. I drove it all across the prairies in Canada and into the northern states a few times, was a great van, but the heat sucked living in Winnipeg so I didn't drive it in the winter. it was punkin orange and I loved it.
