This past July, after 12 years of van ownership, we have sold our 86 Westy. It was a fantastic adventure with 90,000 kms of memories. We travelled coast to coast with two kids and all around the Maritime provinces here on the East Coast of Canada. The success of many of those trips were in part this website and the info gleaned and provided here. I have made friends within the community and one directly from here on Thesamba. I cannot express enough how thankful I am for all the help and advice provided by so many people here!!!

Thank you!!!

Sorry to see you go but when the time comes to move on you must. You can always get another Vanagon!

Not an easy decision as you all can imagine. I was getting tired of the cycle of maintenance and decided it was a good time to make a change.

Definitely going to miss driving her...

This is an awesome community and I will miss it for sure!

So what you list it for and what did it sell for? Always interested in real world selling numbers.

We bought a [email protected] 320 teardrop trailer this summer. It's small, like a westy, packed with conveniences, like a westy, great sleep, like a westy without any mechanical. :)

Future? In the past!

My Great grand father stoled my great grandma 1913 from San Diego county! Look at what I found in the San Diego Recorders Office!

There where no borders back then!

Whos going to pay for the wall? :D :D :D :D :D :D
