Curbside Outtake: VW Vanagon (T3) With Very Odd Rooftop Appurtenance

I was walking the dog down Madison Street when I noticed this very strange sight. Has Frank Gehry gotten into designing vans?

Is this even legal? I guess so, as long as it’s not wider than 102″. One better stick to the middle of the lane.

The question is: what is it?

The top has a slight angle to it.


And the passenger side sticks out eve wider. it’s starting to look like a canopy. As on a food cart.

Sure enough: a look inside confirms that.

Lots of stainless steel prep counter space.

So why not a fold-out canopy? Why does it stick out on the driver’s side? So many questions…
