I’m whole-heartedly behind the thought of an event vehicle, as I want to be able to tow my Audi Coupe GT track car to the event. Why? Well, as fun as it is to drive, driving it hundreds of miles in race seats on race suspension with no radio and no A/C gets…well, trying. But when it comes to towing even something fairly light like my Coupe, the Vanagon is a no-go.
Many years ago I was surprised when a friend of mine arrived at the track towing his E30 M3. It wasn’t that he towed it there, it was what he towed it there with – a then new VR6 24v EuroVan. I starred at the Volkswagen in disbelief; it just shouldn’t have been able to do it, but he assured me that it towed quite well, had room for many or much, and was very comfortable. There’s additionally the benefit of having a dual purpose vehicle; while many “tow vehicles” spend a lot of their time stationary, the EuroVan easily transforms with no modifications to a family truckster with room for most of your child’s grade school class. Even the non-weekender, when pushed, can further double as a light camper. My nomination then for “GCFSB Company Vehicle” is the VR6 24V EuroVan GLS, like this brilliant red one today:

Although I’d wish for the more rare Porcelain Blue as the shade of choice, otherwise this EuroVan is just about perfect to me. The GLS carried the alloys unlike the base model’s hubcaps, and this unit looks sharp all around with only light signs of use. Recent maintenance seems up to date, and the price seems pretty much spot on for a T4. That price, you’ll note, is substantially less than the Weekender/Westfalia editions. Use those savings to rent a hotel at the event you go to for the next several years. It may not be as “romantic” as camping trackside, but I promise the experience will leave you both happier and – if you’re heading there with your wife – married. The only thing missing from this EuroVan? Our logo splashed on the side and a trailer hitch to tow the GT. Sign me up!
