Brazil End of the VW Van
In this Sept. 17, 2013 photo, street vendor Marcos Yoshiga uses his Volkswagen van to transport his crates of eggs to sell at a street market in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Brazil is the last place in the world still producing the iconic vehicle, or "bus" as it's known by aficionados, but VW says production will end Dec. 31. In Brazil it's known as the "Kombi," an abbreviation for the German "Kombinationsfahrzeug" that loosely translates as "cargo-passenger van." (AP Photo/Andre Penner)
