On our afternoon walk to the bodega, we caught sight of a well-maintained '70s-vintage poptop Westfalia Type 2. We've always loved those things; our aunt and uncle had a green one, and if they hadn't gotten rid of it in favor of a '32 Ford sedan with a 302 and a teardrop trailer, we'd say they made a huge mistake. Sadly, since DCX now owns 49% of Westfalia and VW no longer makes a Microbus, we most likely won't see the likes of it again.

My brother used to have a '61 23 window. That was a very sweet machine. 1641cc motor. Whitewall tires. We used to open the ragtop and cruise to the beach during the summer. Good times...

Goober got rid of it, because he didn't have the time to finish the interior. Grr....
