Our friend @yoder_11 recently bought and restored a sweet ’81 full camper with his grandfather, click the link in our bio to check out a rad little video he made adventuring in it this past summer with some friends! This really got us stoked, and is what it’s all about. Good on ya bud! #westylife #vanlove #adventuremobile #freedomvessel #aircooled
#tbt to some good old fashioned hot-rodding of a pretty infamous turbine powered oval window. Last year the Black Widow finally retired it’s 60 year title of world’s fastest beetle (we like all kinds of VW’s around here, not just campers)…
“…the Black widow went airborne at 183 mph, 200 feet short of the ¼-mile traps. She did a few graceful turns, tumbled through the traps, and grounded herself. Unglamorously. Permanently. Roy (driver) was sad, but unhurt. “Sorry about the car,” he said as he unbuckled, “but that was the greatest ride I ever had. Felt like I had all the power in the world.” Too much power for the bug, unless you throttle her back to 160 mph, or change her aerodynamics.” -Turbonique, Inc. 1966
