"Old Volkswagen Station Wagons never die.

The things some people do with an old box.

But then, he didn't start with any old box.

He started with a Volswagen Station Wagon. Which has about twice the amount of space as an ordinary wagon.

There was room for everything.

A refrigerator, a stove, a table, an instant chili dispenser, and of course, the proverbial kitchen sink.

And a way for it all to get in. The two side doors open into a huge 4' by 4' hole.

Also, its roof may be high compared to other wagons, but its overhead is low. Our Standard VW wagon costs only 2,454.

However, if you're plannin to go into the restaurant business, better not buy one new. (The body's been welded into one solid piece of steel, the tires alone will last for 35,000 miles, and on top of everything else, there are four coats of protective paint.)

It'll take too long to get a new one into bad enough shape."
