Inspired by the classic look of vintage Volkswagen Type 2 microbuses, Igloo has released three limited edition coolers, each resembling one of the 1950s and ’60s vehicles. Available on Amazon in red and orange large sizes and a blue mini size (affiliate links), they’re the perfect coolers for bringing a few cold drinks to the beach. I mean, provided your actual VW bus makes it without breaking down on the side of the road.
The larger red and orange coolers hold around twelve cans, and the smaller blue bus around six, although both carry a few less with ice added. Granted they’re not this over-the-top VW microbus cooler, but they’re also not $500. That means there’s a lot of money left over for keeping the coolers stocked with cold drinks. Shoot, if I spent $500 on a cooler I wouldn’t even be able to afford drinks until next year.
I remember my uncle had an old VW microbus he used to haul all us cousins around in on weekend car trips. I also vividly remember the engine catching fire one morning while he was trying to get it started in his yard. It still got us to the river that day though. Didn’t get us back, but it got us there.
