GoWesty Officially Partners with Volkswagen Classic Parts!
In 2011, GoWesty was contacted by the newly formed "Classic Parts" division of Volkswagen Germany. They were sending representatives to North America to interview potential candidates for a direct partnership with Volkswagen. Apparently, they had been following our progress over the years, and they shared that GoWesty was on the short list of several aftermarket distributors they were interested in visiting. Naturally, we were flattered and delighted at the opportunity. Several visits, many meetings, and a few topped-off steins later, we were officially selected as their premiere North American parts distribution partner for Bus, Vanagon, and Eurovan.
What does that mean for you? We are working closely with Volkswagen Classic Parts to import "new old stock" (NOS) parts, to bring no-longer-available (NLA) parts back into production, and to share our knowledge and enthusiasm with VW to further help increase the lifespan of these wonderful vehicles in North America and beyond. With a direct line of contact to the "Fatherland" (as they call it), we can continue to ensure that our mission of keeping your VW on the road remains a reality—with the support and recognition that it deserves.
Update! We're turning opportunity into action. We negotiated a deal with VWCP to relieve them of two 40' containers jam-packed with leftover NOS Westfalia parts. These parts were just getting in the way, and they had no interest in dealing with them. Their headache became our dream-come-true. We have begun the process of finding out just what we received. Check the Special Delivery section of our site often, as we will be adding scores of extremely rare camper parts in very limited quantities. Are you as excited as we are?
