Shot in Portland by Ed Niedermeyer
I think we know which vehicle is their favorite and/or has a leaky roof.
These newer houses in Portland are interesting to me since the garage is on the first level instead of a garage next to the house like older houses in Portland. Sometimes these first level garages get turned into additional living quarters.
This looks like an upslope lot, just like mine, built in 1946. Where else are you going to put the garage?
Lol I read that as *electric*, and spent several minutes looking for a charging cable to any of them. Wouldn’t be the strangest mod we’ve seen here on CC.
The two on the right are not bad starting points for electric conversion. I was considering it for our Thing.
This owner is my kinda guy!
I’ve got a Vanagon, which is a pretty close younger sister to the Bay bus.
But I’ve always wanted a VW Thing; it seemed like the perfect coastal cruiser. I can imagine driving it with the top down along HWY-1, just like Adrienne Barbeau’s character, in John Carpenter’s “The Fog”.
Nice! That’s a pretty cool looking house. Makes me wonder what’s in the garage that kicks these vehicles outside. All three of these are worthy of shelter in my opinion.
Switch the van with a Karmann Ghia and this would be my favorite VW trio in my favorite colors
