I've always liked the early to mid 80's Vanagons. I just don't get the prices these things pull in. That includes the VW Type 2's as well.

BTDT. Those Syncro's go for crazy money, but 50k? Ain't nobody buying that no matter how rich the hipster is. I imagine a swapped engine does wonders, I drove a stock '84 Vanagon for a while and that thing was slooooooow.

There are tons of VW vans on the w. coast. Only because they didn't rust out as much.

I wish I had my Buddy's old early 60's 23 window Kombi; those things go for INSANE $$$$$$$ . For sure nice; just could never be a daily driver for me.

There is an underground storage facility about a 1/4 mile from my home. They store somewhere between 3000 and 4000 vehicles, car, boats, campers, motorhomes, etc. They use to auction off vehicles that the rent hadn't been paid. A few years ago they had a 21 window VW van to auction. Guys showed up from all over the US to bid on it. I can't remember the auction ending price, but it was quite high. There is some neat vehicles stored in there. I drove flatbed wrecker for the local repair shop during layoffs from the factory I worked at. Hauled some rare cars out of there over the years. One of the best stories, was a man and lady were getting divorced and she stuck his prized Corvettes in there and always paid the rent well ahead of time. The Vettes were in there for years, one morning when the storage opened there was a guy waiting at the gate, he asked if they had these two Vettes, they said yes, he said they are mine and I want them back.

Wow; Did he have " That Look" in his eyes; was packing and had a nylon bag that looked like it had a bowling bowl inside that was bleeding ? smile

I got one for you brother. Back in 1982 one of my customer's at the old car stereo shop was telling me ; his brother and him use to look for classics ; trucks etc...and kept seeing an
ad in Palm Springs California that read : 1963 Chevrolet $900.00

He drove out there and it was the older part of Palm springs built in late 50's/60's . They walked up to the house with detached garage and an older woman answered and said it was her son's ; who had stored it there before he went off to Vietnam and unfortunately never came back. All she knew it was a Chevy.

They were dying as they walked back to this garage that looked liked it hadn't been opened in 50 years. They supported the garage doors and inside there was a tarp covering what they couldn't imagine to be true: It was a White 1963 Split window Vette with 23K miles.

They were blown away and stayed in their for quite some time debating weather they should tell the Lady what she had. The guy made me laugh so hard because he said he told his brother he was going to hit him over the head with a shovel and trailer the Vette to his house.

He said that when it was finally his time to meet his Maker and he was at the Pearly Gates : Saint Peter would say: " You and your Brother " Almost " made it here "......Remember that nice old lady in Palm Springs and the 1963 Corvette ? " lol

Wow.
I never thought I'd see the day.

We used to tease the guys that had them and say that the only thing cool about them was that the passenger seat spun around.
Even a late model bay window was cooler, and nobody wanted those either.
