    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
    VDub vans are only cool to two groups,, those who have one and those who want one..
    Those that have had one and realise how embarrassing they are know the truth

    Its a bit like saying flip flops or sandals are cool and poo pooing crocs !
    To be fair the shape is pretty cool too, but then an awful lot of 60's yank tin was..
    Look at the Camaro, the Road Runner, the GTO, the Chevelle ( dispite its granny name ), the 'Cuda with its hemi limp, or even the Charger Magnum the bad guys were in in that chase.. all icons in their own right..
    What did we get ?
    Zodiac, Cresta,Rover P6...and all the other shite ( mind you, quite like the PA Cresta )

    True. I had a chance, back in the early 80's, to buy a Mach 1 at a knockdown price and I've regretted it ever since. Love the shape ....

    Even Steve McQueen (cool) wearing. black cocktail dress (cool) while reciting French 17th century poetry (cool)'would look stupid in Crocs. Not cool by any stretch of the imagination...they say 'I have given up'.

    Actually old VW vans are cool but only ratrod ones with a bloody great diesel stuffed up its chuff :D

    Are we going to start our own cool wall a la top gear ?

    Wrong.

    BMWs aren't cool - I have one.
    nothing with a diesel in it is cool unless it is yellow and has JCB on the side.

    Old VW campers are cool. Sub-zero if a Porsche flat four has been installed .

    they paid $4 million for it because it was Steve McQueen's...... not cos its a Shelby fastback... Steve could have driven a 2CV in Bullet and it would fetch silly money... somehow the car chase wouldn't quite be the same I suspect though.
