VW Camper Van Cool Box - spotted in the wild!
A very important part of our calendar here at The Fowndry, is going 'on safari' to various tradeshows, during the making season (both here and abroad) to stalk product Big Game to shoot for our blog and social media platforms. The intention ultimately of course is to bag a few once they reach maturity and serve them up - freshly prepared - on our delicious gift and gadget Smörgåsbord.
The first amazing product that we tracked down as it swept majestically across the plain carpet in Hall 4 at the NEC this week, was the VW Camper Van Cool Box - mounted and displayed above. It's a scaled down replica of the iconic 1965 Volkswagen Camper Van synonymous with 60s counterculture and is even made from real steel!. The final version will have a cantilevered lid, swivelling wheels and an extendable handle so you can tow it to wherever you fancy chillaxing with a skip full of ice cold brewskis.
It won't be cheap when it rolls off the production line, sometime in early 2015 but what price nostalgia and a bit of California dreamin' when all the leaves are brown and the sky is grey?
