Don't worry about the export laws, it's the US import laws that are the
issue. Figure on $5-7K to bring a T3 into the USA (unless you decide to go
the illegal route and avoid customs and the DOT).
There may be one loophole you should look into: I believe it is easier to
bring your personal vehicle back to the USA if you've been abroad for more
than a year (and have owned the vehicle for more than a year). It's
something worth checking into and if it's true, it gives you a great reason
to buy that Doka right away.

Subject: my visit to autostadt (Wolfsburg)
My company recently moved me to Hamburg, where I will be for the next
year. Naturally, I headed straight for Wolfsburg:
Sadly no Vanagons on display -- not even toys or models in the gift shop.
It seemed they had every other model, except the Vanagon. Fortunately
there are plenty of vanagons still driving around town, and it looks like
the same hippy dudes from Seattle driving them ;)
I'm trying to figure out the export laws here so I can send a couple
double cabs back to the States. If anyone has any hints, let me know.
