The stock, original 1974 odometer on my stock, original 1974 Westfalia rolled over today; 200,000.o miles on Van Go. I took some cell phone pics to commemorate the event, (at 199,999.9 then a few at the big 2-0.)

Still, at 41 years old and (basically) no rebuild it doesn't burn oil, and compression is pretty good in all 4.

I should say a big thanks to one our sponsers, ELLICE AUTOMOTIVE for helping it get there. and the general Island VW community for their hard work and low rates YAY !
Wink

Happy Motoring everyone.
