Dave and Charlotte, from Colorado, knew a good deal when the saw one, and snapped this guy right up (for details of that sale, please click here). They are long time Westy owners, and have owned their 1978 since 1979. They took a trip out to GoWesty to check out the "new" Vanagon models, and decide whether to restore the 'ol 78, or part ways with it. Well, one look at this Westy and they saw the light. Like I have always said, the Vanagon is the "Bigger, better bus...", and they too agree.
