High Roof Late Bay Campervan

10 11 2013

Another Berlin kombi, photos taken in July when this van parked around the corner for a couple of weeks. Front wheel box and cushion covers (green-orange-yellow plaid) look very much like a Westfalia campervan conversion, but the roof is unusual. Not sure whether Westfalia actually installed permanent high roofs on late bays. And on top of the high roof is another pop-up roof. I can see that having head room and extra storage room permanently is useful, seeing how small these campers are.

New York Microbus

8 04 2012

Here are some photos of a bus a friend of mine spotted in 2010 in Manhattan – on one of those unusual car parking shelves that probably popped up because space is so precious in New York. A bit lost between all the modern limousines. Looks like a beautiful T2a. VeeDub emblem upside down. Two Westfalia-style roof rakes and a jalousie window. Only one wind screen wiper. I believe Volkswagen put the additional indicators (or reflectors?) on the front doors only on US models, not on any buses built for the German market.
