The popular Volkswagen Kombi was a remarkable small van manufactured in Brazil. Like the Beetle, the van has received numerous nicknames worldwide, including the "microbus", "minibus" and because of its popularity during the counterculture movement of the 1960s, "Hippie van". Hippies tended to travel light, and could pick up and go wherever the action was at any time. Peace Love Rock and Roll , Groovy (Sixties)! The Hippie Van - The Coolest Van on the Planet!
