Some Pane Required: 1983 Subaru Sambar Sanfu MicroVan

It doesn't matter which side of the pane controversy you fall into -- because this next car is gonna change your mind and turn the entire world pro-pane.  It is simultaneously adorable (just look at how cute the thing is) and terrifying (eggads, imagine merging onto the 405 freeway with two cylinders of LPG power) and I want it. Find this 1983 Subaru Sambar MicroVan offered for $5000 in Huntington Park, CA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!

  1. great little van, although I thought they were called Samba without the "R"? This is the first one I have ever seen that is LHD and made for our city traffic unless someone took the pix and fixed them.

  2. What a shame it is not called the SNAFU! I'm sure a couple of minutes with a razor blade and a glue gun could fix that....

  3. "great for indoor use" lol
