The VW Camper van is more than just a mode of transport. It, like the Mini, is a symbol of days gone by. It is an example of its time, and will always been filled with nostalgia and admiration. It isn’t just a matter of obsession for the lucky few who happen to own a camper that still runs, but a source of fascinationĀ for youngsters free cialis pills who weren’t around when they first became a sensation. Whether surfers riding down to Newquay, hippies driving into the sunset or grandparents heading down to the seaside, there is something about this iconic Volkswagen creation that won’t allow itself to be forgotten or discarded.

This is evidenced by the fact that the VW Camper is 60 years old this year. It has been around through all sortsĀ of trouble and strife, has seen free loving give way to the unions and watched the millennium dawn. It is a flawed vehicle, no doubt about it, but it has a charm and charisma that matter more than any engine or performance!

To celebrate this special birthday, we thought we would put together a quick picture reel of some of the coolest VW camper vans that we have been lucky enough to hear about!

    I love the VW teeny mini camper van shown in green and white. What a sweet little van – just what I would love to have. Is there anyone out there that has one to sell, or knows where I can find one?
