Addition to the familia ........... 1971 Westfalia

Many of you have been following this blog for some years and know first hand how long I've been on the hunt for a camper. A split window camper was out of the question as we all know, they are very EXPENSIVE! And after touring Europe in my 71 Westy, I figured I'd get one when I returned. But that was a rude awakening upon my return. I noticed TONS of campers out in Europe during my travels and never thought about where they were coming from? They were coming from the Colonies! JODER! When I returned I was on the hunt for one buy gave up really easily and I found out what they were going for. But one day, thanks to Comrade Dougie, I was offered a 1971 Westafalia. I bought it from a gentleman by the name of Inky Ford. He had to sell it as he was being charged for tax evasion and offered it to me for what he had into it. which was almost nothing! He basically gave it away, or gave it to me. This bus is so freakin clean! or as they say in España .......... Joder tio, este furgo esta de puta madre! And literally. This bus still has all of its original interior and is complete! Even the jumper stool and original flooring is still there. Everything is there. It does need some work but its nothing I can't sort out. We plan on taking tons of camping trips on this one and plan a road trip up to Canada eh.
