Kester's Volkswagenwerks

I was there in October 2017. The garage is for sale and nothing can be viewed any more except the extended VW still parked outside... for who knows how long?

Kester's Volkswagenwerks

Lots of highly-modified Volkswagens. Earl will gladly show you around. Ask for a look inside the VW bug/camper.

A man named Kester owns a "bug shop" in the small town of Holbrook, AZ. It is on Hopi Drive, which is part of old Route 66! This little town is worth the stop off the freeway. And if he's there, stop and see Earl. He's friendly and still carries that east coast accent he brought with him in the seventies!
