Soulful old VW van

This van some how just had it. (I’m sure this will only make sense to past or present-VW van owners.) It was rigged up nicely for living inside.

About Lloyd Kahn

Lloyd Kahn started building his own home in the early '60s and went on to publish books showing homeowners how they could build their own homes with their own hands. He got his start in publishing by working as the shelter editor of the Whole Earth Catalog with Stewart Brand in the late '60s. He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated. The books, "The Shelter Library Of Building Books," include Shelter, Shelter II (1978), Home Work (2004), Builders of the Pacific Coast (2008), Tiny Homes (2012), and Tiny Homes on the Move (2014). Lloyd operates from Northern California studio built of recycled lumber, set in the midst of a vegetable garden, and hooked into the world via five Mac computers.

  1. It tells you something that when the folks at the Palo Alto Research Center were given a budget of $30,000 to buy any utility vehicle they wanted, they chose a 1960s vintage VW bus, which they bought off eBay and subsequently converted to electric. I've owned two vintage microbuses in my lifetime and never had a more practical or reliable vehicle.

  2. This beauty reminds me of my first(of 6) Vans. It was red like this one with a green door with beefy tires. I bought it for 200.00 in 1988 and sold it a few months later in Puerto Penasco Mexico for 210.00. I bet its still doing its thing. Vans made my climbing-bum/ ski-bum lifestyle possible for almost 15 years.
