End of the line for the classic VW Camper!

Sad news. After 63 years of happy camping, the very last classic VW camper van will roll off the assembly line on 31 December! Brazil is the last country still making the iconic 60s van, but the introduction of new safety regulations requiring all vehicles to be fitted with air bags and anti-lock brakes, means production will stop at the end of this year.

The final vans will be special editions, but to the fans across the world and the generations, everyone has a favourite VW van. Share yours with us. Perhaps it’s the van that took you to your first festival, or a camping trip across Europe, or the van that takes you to work everyday.

Share your photographs and videos and tell us what you love about the ‘Hippie van’ – it may be the end of the line but hopefully it’s not the end of the road. We will feature the best images on the Guardian site.
