Vanagon vs. Sprinter with the Beck's
"Moving from an '86 2WD (Gold) Vanagon to the '89 Syncro Westy (pictured) was a change in the adventure level but not always the kind we anticipated. My husband talked me into investing in an Audi 1.8T motor so we could travel from point A to B a bit quicker (we had small children). Like post 1 stated, many 'bugs' hampered our road trips. We found all the VW parts stores and junkyards along each route. To our three boys it was all part of the adventure and to me a lesson in patience!"
