Brazil End of the VW Van
In this Sept. 16, 2013 photo, Enio Guarnieri wipes the VW emblem of his 1972 Volkswagen van, in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Guarnieri, who keeps his blue and white van or Kombi in his cluttered garage, bought the vehicle a year ago to stoke childhood memories. When he was 10, his father taught him to drive a Kombi. "Driving a Kombi with your face up against the windshield is a thrilling adventure, there is no other van like it," he said. "There is no other van that is so easy and inexpensive to maintain. Anyone with a minimum amount of knowledge about engines and a few tools can fix a Kombi." (AP Photo/Andre Penner)
