CC Video: Resurrection – 1955 VW Panel Van Abandoned 40 Years in the Woods Is Found, Fixed and Driven Back Down the Mountain

CC reader Dave just sent me this video, which I found very worthwhile watching. Working from a tip given him by a mushroom hunter, a young man searched for and found a ’55 VW van abandoned 40 years ago deep in the French Alps. The initial plan was to tow it out, but he decided to “restore” it on site, and drive it out instead. With the help of some friends and a lot of parts, they get it running on the second day, and manage to drive it back to civilization. Very sweet, and it reminds me of the woods of Oregon.
