Just emailed for more details on this one.

ALL vanagon westfalias are slow up hills. Freeway driving is like any other car, especially if you upgrade the tire and wheel package, mine will do 70-75 mph all call long. But if you even whisper the ...

At this point, just find the cleanest non-issue van. Arguing about early and late water cooled vans is a total waste of time. Both are super slow, and both are super cool. Deal with it.

I have been there personally and the guys working the counter know their shit, are super helpful, and actually walked around the complex with me. I think they are a huge asset.

Where is the coolant going? Is it simply leaking at the water jacket seal or is the engine oil milky?

Water leak only: take lots of fluids, hope it doesnt get worse, life is an adventure

Oh, sorry. I thought people came here to price compare and see if their body guy is over-charging or giving them a good deal. You know, for budgeting and what not.

My bad, sorry. That must be some ...

I had a bay window and it was super cool, just slow as a pig. The interior space seems about the same. A we ...

If its clean, I think 3 grand isnt a bad price. Weekenders a cool. For another 3-4k you can go through the motor and have a clean van with no mysteries. If its not clean and rust free, walk away.

Xtremjeepn, do you have some sort of deal going with the used Eurovan club of America where you get a few bucks for every one sold?

Seriously, they arent busses.

The two (vanagons and euros) dont compare on any level. One is an antique, and one is a modern front engine van from platform to top. Why they are in the same forum is an absolute mystery.

The author of this thread has another one about deciding between late or early waterbox weekenders. No one attacked the Eurovan, it simply doesnt apply because he doesnt want one.

VW busses are expensive. The last version (vanagon) is the most livable and the design has aged well. Nice ones have tons of money in them and, honestly, what would you replace it with once you sold i ...

All the years (1984-91) are cool, all are old cars at this point, and all the years have slow motors. Buy the nicest one you can find/afford. I wanted a weekender but ended up with a full westy only b ...
