I just wanted to take a minute to tell you how pleased I am with my GoWesty project.
Buying a vehicle off the internet, sight unseen, is a leap of faith. I spent a great deal of time prior to my purchase researching diffferent options, trying to get the most value for my dollar on a 15 year old Westfalia. During my research, all roads kept leading back to GoWesty. Sure, your "Competitors" sell some nice vans, but NO ONE came close to giving my what I really wanted, a completely gone through, like new 1990 Volkswagen Westfalia.
Picking up the van was a great experience. I was impressed with the size of your operation, and the level of knowledge that your employees possess. Dustin was very patient with me, and took the time to go completely through the van and answer any questions I had regarding the different systems onboard. I was impressed with the attention to detail that goes in to all of your projects, and your committment to make sure things are done right the first time.
The drive home to southern California was a true pleasure. The 2.4 Liter motor ROCKS! I actually found myself in the passing lane while going uphill! For anyone that has ever owned a Volkswagen van before, you can appreciate how nice it is to actually make it up a hill without slowing to 40 miles per hour, and turning off the air, and waving at people trying to get by on the left. The new wheels and tires, coupled with the Bilsteins and suspension upgrade make the van handle like a dream. A true pleasure to drive. I have recieved numerous compliments on the van since returning home. A few of my friends thought I was crazy for buying this van off the internet sight unseen, but after seeing the finished product, they just stand in amazement, wishing they had done the same with their Westy's.
Anyway, Thank you Lucas. And please let your entire crew I appreciate all their hard work on making my van just what I wanted. They did an awesome job, and you have a customer for life in me... If you ever have someone that is not sure about what GoWesty can do for them, please have them contact me. I would gladly share my experience with them.
