Volkswagen Vanagon

A collection of my personal mechanical experiences on my vanagons

Welcome to my Volkswagen Vanagon page. 

So far the family consists of an 88 Vanagon GL, and an 87 Westfalia.

Whenever I do major work to my vanagon or westfalia, I will try to document it w/ photos and short descriptions. Try being the key word.
