Finding Escape in a 1985 Volkswagen Vanagon Westfalia | Why I Drive - Ep. 11

Published in Video

Tyler Hamersma’s driveway is a perpetual game of musical cars. He can’t abide idle hands, so to keep busy he buys, fixes, and flips VWs, Audis, and BMWs. But the constant amidst this flux of German metal is Charlotte, his 1985 Volkswagen Vanagon Westfalia. Charlotte is a beloved member of Hamersma’s family. Through countless travels and camping trips it’s been his pre-packed adventuremobile, ready to whisk him away from the city and out into the country at a moment’s notice. And since he loves to wrench, it’s a good thing the teal-colored Westy always needs some kind of TLC. Hamersma knows that the van will never truly be finished, but he also doesn’t want it to be.
