Happy Syncro de Mayo: 1987 Volkswagen Vanagon

Welcome to Daily Turismo’s Syncro de Mayo (a day late edition), our May 5th (*and 6th) celebration of Volkswagen’s four-wheel drive system known as Syncro. Sycro was Volkswagen’s viscous center coupling device that put what little power the Vanagon made into all four wheels The Vanagon (technically the Type 2, known as the Kombi/Bulli/Transporter/Caravelle/T25/Microbus) name is a portmanteaux of van and wagon. Van-wagon. Vanagon. VW was trying to give buyers the impression that the Type 2 was more like a wagon than a classic van. Regardless, the Vanagon was cheap for decades, but these have gotten expensive over the past few years.
