Brazil End of the VW Van
In this Sept. 16, 2013 photo, Enio Guarnieri poses for a photo in his 1972 Volkswagen van, in his garage in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Guarnieri 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)
