The Mic Van

I came across the COOLEST vintage VW van while shooting for ZDF at the Volkswagen factory in Chattanooga. For you non-audio geeks, Telefunken was a German company that made some very nice tube studio microphones (in addition to their much more common radio and television stuff). Telefunken mics are highly sought after today, and are still used in studios where price is no object.

I was trying to figure out how far I could get if I tried to drive it out of VW’s conference center, since they left the key in the ignition.

The coolest van ever, a 1951 VW Type 2 Commercial, with Telefunken markings.
