I too, like so many have a VW past, and present. I had 2 '71 type 2. My Westfalia was a hard top...darn! But I used to take it all over the SW'st US on the craziest roads, some of which were really staircases. I remember on one very rough road watching my speedometer rotate in it's case from the sever vibration. Once, on "the loneliest road in america" hwy 50 my points broke. Fortunately I had a spare one and a feeler gauge and was back on the road in 20 minutes. My other '71 was a double cab pickup. that turned out to be a collecters item. Only 500 imported to the US and the last year for that model. It was my work truck for 13 years (I bought it in the late 80's from a gringo friend I knew from Barra) was kind of beat up and sold it for double what I paid. This morning we're leaving for eastern WA in our '85 Westfalia that I just re-wired the engine compartment harness. Interesting that in the caravan only one pop-top.
