    VW camper van memories

    Tea Party Van

    I recently sold a couple of vehicles and thought I should have a VW Camper as I did when I was in the Navy in the early 70's. A friend found a 1971 Westy online this October listed by the original owners. Great find. Original keys, bill of sale, maintenance records, etc. We made a deal and my 17 year old daughter and I flew from Michigan to Orlando and drove "Claire" home. No bad news--she ran like new. Only one blown tire 50 miles from home and I put on the 41 year old spare to get us the rest of the way. This winter we are using Claire to host tea parties for my granddaughter who is coincidentally named Claire. This spring and summer will be fun when we drive all over northern Michigan
