This time around, this is what is being added:

That is about all it needs....

All said and done, McGreggor spent over $75,000 on this Westy back in 2008. It would cost at least $85,000 to build the same Westy today. He put only 13,602 miles on it.

Yeah, this is a good deal.

What else would be NICE to add? How about:

• Portable winch that can fit front or rear
• Updated stereo with Bluetooth hands-free cell phone interface
• Black leather Recaro front seats and matching front door panels
• South African black leather steering wheel
• Fresh transaxle with custom gearing
• Front locker (third knob on Syncro panel)
• Torque-biasing differentials front and rear
• Larger tires
And, and, and...

If you can dream it up, we can make it happen! This puppy is definitely worthy of throwing just about ANYTHING you can think of at. 

Joby came down on a Saturday to talk VW campers. We poked around several, and he got to drive a very nice Eurovan and this Syncro. I took him wheelin' in my Syncro—and that was it. He was sold.
