Welcome to Generation Gap where we ask you about your favorite generation of a certain multi-generational car nameplate. Then, explain why your choice is right to the rest of us uneducated folks.


We’ve seen plenty of modern minivans recently here on Generation Gap but what about one of the first “mini” vans? While the vehicle in question was never meant to be as family friendly as today’s seven-seaters, it was nevertheless a compact yet supremely practical monospace design which as ballooned into a modern executive shuttle and cargo hauler. Yep, it’s the humble VW Transporter! Do you prefer the earlier air-cooled RR ones or the newer VR6 variants?
