I too had a 78 Westphalia with pop top! Richard and I bought the body for $500 without an engine and he proceeded to put a more powerful engine in and completely rebuilt the whole system! Genius! But cannot remember what the engine was! Damn!
What I do remember is all the fun we had taking it all over the place and then driving her to LM when we finally came back for 6months in 2002! She made many trips back and forth with dog and cats and books to start the bookstore in 2004!
She was well loved and well travelled but I so.d her after Richardís passing to someone who understood the specific needs of maintaining her! Which I could not explain!
I know where and who she is with and have been offered to take her out whenever...and this might just get me to do it when I return to the North!
So thanks for the sweet memories and those of others who lucky enough to own one!
