Texas Vanagons Episode 1

Texas Vanagons Episode 1

Video produced and shot for TopThisPlace.com

TopThisPlace.com set off on adventure with Abel Longoria the founder of TexasVanagons.com for a trip to Austin, Tx. The final destination, Top Notch Hamburgers for a TexasVanagons Meetup!

One of the main advantages of having a localized Vanagon club is the ability to get in your van and meetup with fellow owners in person. In Episode 1 we travel 160 miles from Houston to Austin to do just that, meetup with other area Vanagon owners. Our go to meetup spot is Top Notch Hamburgers which is an Austin icon plus the restaurant owner is also a TexasVanagons member, he owns a 1990 Vanagon Westfalia Camper.

Top Notch Hamburgers is a 1950's car hop that's famous for being in the 1993 film "Dazed and Confused" which was filmed here in Austin. Top Notch hosts a number of classic car nights, hot rod nights and now of course, our TexasVanagons Meetups.

Meetups like these give me a great excuse to fill up the tank and hit the road! Can't wait til the next one!
