Growing up my Dad use to always drive a VW Van. Not the cool vintage VW Buses, but the dorky 80's vans that would make you wonder if those people actually lived in that thing or not. My Dad was never a car guy or VW fanatic but I recall him driving two different VW Vans during my childhood. I was so embarrassed of those cars. But then ironically enough I end up marrying a guy who is a VW freak (didn't know that when we first started dating) whose prize possession is an classic/old ugly VW truck. The universe does some crazy things! Here is me and my parents stuck on the side of the road in the early 80's..........

Here is me and my brother fishing with cat toys for our cats hanging out of the back of our second VW Van back in the mid 80's...........
