A Sad Day for an Old Westi A Sad Day for an Old Westi
Karl Orteza
My daughter saw this Westi on her way to school one morning, she was so excited to tell me about it, knowing that I love the Vintage Beetles and Bus. I picked her up this afternoon and asked her to show me where it was, I was very enthusiastic about it, I had great ideas on my mind on how to build the old westi and bring it back to life, since she described it to have the old split window. I was driving very slow so as not to miss the location to where she saw it. When i saw it from afar it was wasn't as bad, I stepped down on my car to have a closer look. I froze the moment i saw it, there infront of me was this rundown old canary yellow vintage bus, I couldn't help but felt sorry for this Westi, I was angry to myself to have not seen it years before when it was up and running, coz i use to ride down this road on my bike. It was really a heartbreaker. How could someone be that insensitive and leave it there to rot? I only took one quick shot of the now hopeless Westi for my heart was feeling a lot of loss... Is there any way i can bring this back to life? I guess only a miracle can help me now... :( By the way, I'm from off-shore Manila...

De bus van Marco Verschelling, voor de fatale aanrijding. Rotterdam, 25 maart 2001. Een zwarte dag. De laatste dag van het zwart met vlammen busje. Rechts net voor het achterwiel geramd, gekanteld, tegen een paal van de trambovenleiding geklapt met de achterkant van het dak, terug de weg op gestuiterd en op de wielen neer gekomen. Gelukkig had de bestuurder alleen een blauw oog en een schram op zijn been door de huissleutels in zijn broekzak. Het dak is in elkaar gefrommeld door de paal van de trambovenleiding. Dat hij hier zonder kleerscheuren uit is gekomen verbaasde de politie en het ambulancepersoneel. Onze oude bussen zijn best stevig..

Friends and funtimes at Lake Havasu. Can you hear Willie Nelson singing, "Nothin but blue skys from now on..." Susan in good spirits and great health. T-shirt weather in January indicates the potential for the summer heat. Yikes! In the meantime, WetWesties eat your hearts out.

I have begone to carry my digicam with me everywhere so I can take pictures of all the VW's I see driving or laying around. I hope to eventually have a great resource and also a chronicle of all the older VW's in my area and help people remmeber what they looked like before something happens to them and they are lost forever.

A closer look at a nightmare come true. Luckily, no-one was hurt, and I have every confidence that I can put Clara back together again. (I'll get professional help, though!) Hello all Vintagebus listees!

One doesn't generally stop for a person ahead making a right turn...except that the person in front of me this time was swinging wide for a U-turn! Our poor '66 Westy smashed into the S*b@r* and then off the left embankment (10ft) and ended up on her side! She will ride again, I swear!

1966 Westy For Sale 1966 Westy For Sale
Martin Frost
I have a '66 poptop camper for sale. I am fromWashington State and I am selling it for $2000 obo. I have the canvas awning that comes off of the side and a set of the original wheels. It is a project, but a very do-able project. Please keep in mind that these pics aren't the best and that I didn't do these destructive mods! I just haven't had the chance to do anything with the thing and I've had it for over three years now. To go into a little bit of detail, it does need the typical rust maintenence pieces but not that badly. You could easily use this thing as a daily driver. I will be taking some more in depth photos soon! Here are the ones I have at the moment!!

1960 Westfalia 1960 Westfalia

From ebay:
Restored 1960 Westphalia Camper. !960 was the first production year of these camper vans and this one is a beauty! It was parked for twelve years prior to 1995 when I started restoration work on it. This very unique van boasts features like a rebuilt Porche 911 engine, a modified VW type four transmission, Treasure chest top, Vacumn boost brakes, all birch interior and over THREE THOUSAND dollars in CHROME TRIM! To complete the look this van has also been lowered all the way around and outfitted with low profile tires with Porche 356 hub caps. Since the restoration in 1995 I have only put six thousand miles on it. This van is one of a kind! Don't let it get away!
