Sorry man. Gotta be tough this time of year when the weather is starting to point towards bus season here in the midwest. There's another one out there for you somewhere....

Rule #3. Keep looking and have your piggybank at the ready. These cars do NOT bite you.
The longer you enjoy them, the more the market will get you rightside up.

( I have seen about five nice Westies over the past year. Three were stupidly over-priced. I am sure that I could have demoralized the sellers with a technically-accurate and devastating report on all of its flaws, then made an offer)

Put an ad on theSamba and Hemmings, make sure that you have a note that says,

"for information on how to maintain your new Volkswagen, please visit "www.itinerant-air-cooled.com"

Detail the car, fill the gas tank, and sell for $23,000.00

Well, it was on Craigslist for a good price but had no interest at all. So it stays :cheers:
