Illustration for article titled Maximum Hoonage: Syncro de Mayo

When I was about 10-years-old I went camping at Pismo Beach in a Volkswagen Vanagan Syncro Westphalia. My friend's father was an editor at Trailer Life magazine and VW had given him a 4x4 van to play with. For those who have never been, you're allowed to drive cars on the beach at Pismo. I'll never forget taking the Syncro on the sand and deliberately trying to get it stuck. Couldn't do it, despite my buddy's dad's worst efforts. That viscous coupling was something else. The camping was a blast, too. I can only imagine how much fun these dudes had beating the snot out of their Syncros. Why, they look like they're having as much fun as Se7en owners. You owe it to yourself to check out the gallery. Tip of the Green Bay Packers starter cap to eltonito for the hook up. Cabo Tahoe, dude. []
