I think I've got a Pentium VLB mobo laying about in the public spaces here...
While I haven't seen any 386 VLB boards, I've got an AST 386 where the CPU
(AMD surface-mount clone) is fit on a daughter card which plugs into a VLB
slot, though it's far away from the ISA slots.
After all, if there is a lot of VLB capacity, why not use a readily-available
electrical interface instead of inventing one of your own?

Another odd PC mobo I've got is a 486 board with ISA, possible VLB as well,
and a DX-50 Overdrive processor. Well, that's not so strange, but in the
middle of the board, there is a DIN connector, like a VME or Nubus connector.
What could that be?
