Readers Rides Post pics, specs and build-up stories of your vehicles - or even your garages here. Also interesting stuff about your 'daily drivers' etc. or interesting cars you have seen on your travels, even motors-based TV shows you can recommend. Please, no 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your 'business', links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled 'What's My Car Worth?' threads and "Who Can Sell Me A . . ." posts.

Default Milly the 1979 Westfalia Berlin Deluxe Bay Window Camper Van from Sunny California

Found it on eBay a few days ago whilst I was planning my trip to Kleft & Klonk. She was living in Carlisle with a nice guy called Lee Moses who imported her 18 mths ago.
Lee bought her to keep & has done a terrific job painting her. It was originally from Sunny California by one family from new. I got a pile of receipts dating back to 1980. Lee stripped the outside & carried out a bare metal respray in base coat & lacquer. It has never been welded (apart from the side markers etc) Its 100% rust free & there isn't a mark or blemish anywhere.
Its the 1979 2.0 L Fuel Injection engine with electronic breaker less ignition, Catalytic converter & oxygen sensor, its much more efficient than a normal air cooled & drives spot on. I've driven home tonight 400 miles without missing a beat.
Here are the pics that were on eBay:-
