Beautiful 1982 Vanagon Diesel Westfalia on 2040-cars
Dennard, Arkansas, United States
This is a beautiful 1982 Vanagon Diesel Westfalia. the outside is in good condition, original paint and all. perfect for a new honey mooning couple, adventurous bachelor, or someone going through a midlife crisis and wanting to travel the states in style. Has a complete working stove, ice cold refrigerator and freezer combo, fold out bed and table, and a custom folding out bunk as an extra bed if you are brave enough to bring little ones along for the trip. It needs a little bit of love. The motor is outside of the vehicle as of now , the shady mechanic I had it at said it needed some engine work so it could needing some or he could have been trying to rip me off as that was his speciality, the canvas on the pop top has some mouse chewing, and the rear passenger corner has had some body work that needs to be redone if you wanted to restore it like new. It has a rust spot near the bottom of the middle passenger side which you can see in the pictures. It just needs a little work to bring it back to it's original beauty. I had a rack on top installed originally worth $1,200.00 and a bike rack on the rear side originally $300. I have taken it on a road trip with my two children into Canada while they where still young, and will always remember it as one of the best bonding experiences and most fun times of my life. It has been sitting in a garage for years and thought someone of similar taste might have some of there own adventures in it. Don't miss out on the experience worth every penny. feel free to call me at 870-504-1922 if you have any questions!

Meet Brad, Sheena and Nacho

Driving through China is a pricey proposition. The couple will need to pony up a staggering $19,514 just to cover the fees.
Brad and Sheena Van Orden are in the midst of a life-defining campaign to travel around the world, and they're doing it in a 1984 Volkswagen Vanagon custom built for the occasion. The past 15 months have seen the couple quit their jobs with Gore-Tex and drive from Arizona to the very southern tip of Argentina after spending a full two years saving and preparing for the trek. Now they're in southern Asia gearing up for the next leg of their journey.
LeMons racing is a wonderful example that setting limits can actually breed creativity. The series mandates that all entries must cost $500, not counting safety equipment, and that cap forces teams to be ingenious in how they build a racecar. Take for example this diesel-powered Porsche 911, which its creators have dubbed Ferkel the Nein-11, that will be racing in the Sears Pointless race this weekend in Sonoma, California.

This Frankenstein combines a 911 chassis that was originally bought just for its European powertrain and a Volkswagen TDI diesel engine mounted in the rear. After deciding the shell could still be of some use, the team decided to go racing. "We began brainstorming what replacement drivetrain to use for maximum offense and there was really only one answer: a diesel," said Philipp von Weitershausen, one of the team captains, to Jalopnik. They bought a 1998 Jetta TDI on the cheap and started figuring out a way to hack the engine into the bay. To pay respect to the donor, the VW's trunk was highly modified (and drilled) and grafted onto the back of Ferkel.
This team isn't a newcomer to LeMons. Its last car was a classic VW Beetle with a Subaru engine and dual controls, named Ferdinand the Bug, which could be driven from the left or right side. It's quite a sight.
Reports in October 2012 claimed Volkswagen had begun investigating the creation of its own budget brand. This came after having failed to purchase Malaysian car company Proton or produce a meaningful partnership with Suzuki, and after watching Renault-Nissan make piles of euro on Dacia and plot the return of Datsun.
For VW, more important than the question of what to call it was how to build it profitably and in a way that didn't damage the VW brand. According to a report in Autocar, a satisfactory answer still hasn't been found. The hurdle is how to hit "'necessary' quality and safety levels" at the price points needed to make the venture worthwhile. At the time of the 2012 report, German outlet Der Spiegel said VW was trying to get prices down to 6,000 to 8,000 euro ($7,784 to $10,379 US), about two thousand to four thousand euro under the price of the VW Up and in line with the cost of a 6,790-euro Dacia Sandero in Germany.
In March 2013, VW announced, "We want to bring a true budget car to the market in China in the foreseeable future," the most concrete move in that direction after years of planning to make a decision. Working with local Chinese maker FAW, it was predicted that the vehicle in question would appear around 2016, but as of November last year a final vote on it needed to wait until this year because "We are still working on the cost side" and profit possibilities for a car that "has to be durable, it has to be precise, it has to be safe."
