    Is this VW, 4WD or AWD? I see the transporter was. We were a VW family from the early 60s to late 70s. I would definitely buy another Micro Bus or Camper with 4WD, like the Transporter. Their simplicity and German engineering makes them one of most reliable vehicles in the world.

    Heres what is great about you: you seem like the kind of guy who makes jokes about people on roller blades, people who update cellphones yearly, people who don't understand jokes about people, people who really give two shits about cars, and people who make reviews for youtube. You seem like a guy who wouldnt take a hertz free upgrade because you didn't rent the car for its mid-sizety; you rented it because you're driving 300 miles in three days and it'll be cheaper. You seem like a guy who is gonna forego the camping trip with other friends' families because who wants to spend time off with other people's kids who cry when they get wet. And you seem like the kind of guy who is only into this stuff not because it's particularly fitting for your own way of life but because you appreciate the industrial tetrissy engineering and you're good at imagining yourself for a few minutes being someone who loves tracking sand in other places besides a beach. You're maybe the guy who says off-camera, "...yeah. ok. I get it now. I can see why those people are all into this sort of crap. It's neat" And cameraman snickers, "THOSE people." And you both have a knowing laugh at your (and their) expense.

    German guy checking in. *Stop salivating* . The base model California costs the equivalent of $70,000 here in Germany. That won't have *ANY* of the cool stuff shown in this video. You can easily push that to north of $90,000 - for a friggin' minivan!

    I had three microbuses back in the day 68, 70 and 71. Glad they got rid of the air cooled engine. I got rid of the 71 in 1976, and I have never owned a VW again. Know that engine like the back of my wrist.

    Our freedom to travel in #Portugal without major restrictions is coming to an end. Starting 9th of January, there's a new Law that prohibits overnight stays and parking in ALL places that are not designated for #Motorhomes or #Campervans (for the entire Portuguese territory).⁣ ⁣We gathered all the information and created a public Post quite complete about the current situation of #motorhomes and #vanlife in #Portugal. So to understand the context of this publication, we advise you to read this Post carefully. The link is available on our Bio ( or can be accessed at (only in Portuguese sorry)⁣ ⁣This is clearly the result of several situations that happened in the year 2020 and that the media insisted on emphasizing, often associating #motorhomes and #vanlifers to the pollution of the Alentejo and Algarve Coast.⁣ ⁣For us who have been traveling full-time for two years in our #van that has been legalized and has all the conditions to be self-sufficient, this is a major attack on our freedom. Our lifestyle is compromised when this freedom of choice is taken away.⁣ ⁣For those who follow us, mainly on GEcold (, you know that we always practice and promote this way of life in a responsible and conscious way, always respecting space and nature, showing others how to do the same. This situation that is happening in Portugal, makes us deeply sad.⁣ ⁣There are two petitions currently underway so that we can reverse or change the law. Everyone's collaboration is very important and that is why we ask you to sign. Links to them are also available in our Bio.⁣ ( ⁣Lastly we ask you to share this Post, it is very important for us, so that we can raise awareness of this problem.⁣ Thank you so much. Stay safe!

    Thanks to everyone taking their time to read this testimony on how my son was saved from Autism. He was diagnosed four years ago, and he's just 6, I have tried several treatments and medications, nothing was working out, this got me frustrated and depressed. I kept praying and finally God answered my prayers when someone from youtube introduced me to this doctor from his home country and gave me his contact details. I called and explained my son's condition after which I made an order for his herbal remedy, he asked for my address and the next day I got a tracking number for a parcel sent to me through DHL and after four days I received my order. It was a liquid herbal medicine and a letter containing the instructions on how to use the herbs, I called him again to confirm and the next morning I started giving my son the herbs as instructed and after one week I noticed great improvement on my son and I continued until the herbs got finished and everything lasted for just one month and now my son is totally free from Autism, he can now talk clearly, behave normally and has no more seizures. If you've been searching for a genuine solution for Autism, connect with this honest Doctor on Whats App + 2 3 4 9045034505 or Email:: (drosususolution@gmail. com).....
