Vintage VW vans

Greg Urrutia with his ’60 VW van. There were 3 of these old vans downtown last Friday. I’d just swam across the channel and ran on Stinson beach and when I got back, I grabbed my camera out of the truck. (I’d owned a ’60 VW van that I’d driven across the river into Puerto Vallarta in ’63, to NYC and back in ’64 (December-brrr!), and on (and in) which I’d carried half of the materials for my house in Big Sur in ’67, so I love these old vans.)

This is a group of guys who own vintage VW’s.
