Sadly I can't find any pictures of that van, carried more shit than I can imagine putting in a van today. Of course just don't try and go up any hills

Keep the stripes or take them off?


Ok. This is the new (to me) pop up camper van. Should I remove the blue stripes or keep them on?

Even Jesse James knows that VW vans are cool:
