YAK Car Pic of the Day

.

.

So you’ve always wanted to be “hip” (do people even say that anymore?)? Here’s your chance. This 1978 Volkswagen Type II (bus) is For Sale, seen yesterday sitting outside the Town of Niagara Highway Department garage. It looks to be in pretty good shape for something 35-years-old; can’t say how it runs, though. If this is too old for you, you can hop a flight down to Brazil where they still sell these things new — although you’ll have to wait 25 years before you can import it to the U.S. (see the Brazilian 2013 Kombi here). All this one needs is some tie-dye curtains and a psychedelic paint job, and you’re good to go!
