Personally, I just don't see the appeal of Vanagons....
It's an odd little vehicle it really is I will grant you that. It is shorter than your average Honda Accord yet somehow feels cavernous inside. It has all the handling prowess of a city bus (and driving position too) yet remains fun to drive.
The sit up and beg driving position, the feeling of freedom that comes with owning such a versatile vehicle, the bread box looks, the way it trundles down the road. It all sort of slows you down and forces you to regain your perspective. It's a neat experience and one I recommend highly to anyone in need of a bit of... introspective and de-stressing.
I still want to buy another Vanagon (this time a diesel) and take a good solid year off to do a bit of soul searching and exploring. That right there is the appeal of a Vanagon to me. I'm sure other owners will have other things they dig about them but those are my personal reasons for loving the things.
