I need it for my camp and snowboarding. So get this....

The deal I made is, I will buy this new van and give him my new jetta. that way he has his fast sports car to impress his gf's and I have my van. Dont get me wrong I love my Jetta but it really doesnt serve me well like the van will. And your right that aint a mans vehicle (the van) but it will give me what I am looking for...

Besides...u wanna see a true snowboarding vehicle here she is... You take this puppy to the resort parking lot and you have instahotel complete with independent internal heating...



Only 35 made right from the VW factory in Germany(custom blue stripe is specific to the package). And it is registered with VW/Westfalia as #14 of #35 produced. Problem is this baby never sees snow. Thats why she looks, runs and has been perfect for the past 25 years and should last another 24.

edit: this is actually our stage crew vehicle we take to gigs when we do stage work for bands. Its actually had some famous musicians party in it
not gonna lie i dig the mini van approach. does it have AWD?

BA-NA-NA. Say it again now BA-NA-NA

Full-size vans are definitely the way to travel. If I could get one with 4wd and hella rust-proofed body with snow tires (and a diesel and manual transmission if I'm dreaming anyway) along with the money to buy it/fill it up, it would be my ultimate snowboarding vehicle, FOR SURE.

Be nice to your Hacker. We make magic happen.

Knowing how damn expensive a set of 16" or 17" Snow tires are im scared to ask how much 35" Studded Tires cost lol.
That shits gotta be like 3k after wheels...
