A VW microbus was the first vehicle my Dad bought after immigrating to Canada and getting his license to drive.
He also enjoyed his libations. I think he would approve

Did VW steal the cooling tech from Igloo?

$350 for something that only carries 8 cold beverages.  Sure, it's kitschy and sorta cool, but not for that kind of $$..


I'll spring for the knockoff Yeti for $50 from Costco, and spend the remaining $300 on booze, TYVM..

Ass, gas, or grass, nobody drinks for free.

For that kind of price, I'd want it to have all Carlin's lines from the Cars movies to play when you opened the lid.

Make it powder blue with Dharma Initiative front badge and you might have a deal, but only if Kate, Sun, Juliet Claire or Alex come with it.

Pretty cool - may get one.

So, like $30-$40 or so,...[SPITS]

Is it weird that I want it to like me?

Yeah, but everyone who has an actual microbus will want one, and they've got money to spend, given what they sell for these days.

It's not even an active coolbox. For that spend, I would have thought a rechargeable cooling unit would be expected. It would be fun if the headlights worked, too.

It's nice that it's an all metal construction, and it's way better looking than those plastic crate things, but 30L is a bit smaller than I would like.

Not what I expected.

So so cool.

Why is it full of ice, I figured it would be air-cooled.

On the plus side, it's the original 13-window version.

If it comes in a Baja version with auto-follow, I'll trade my soul
