Post ’77 Deluxe Westy in Sage Green
Katie and I just got back from a week long road trip in our ’67 Riviera camper, Moose. We love to travel, and usually the ’03 VW Rialta is our go-to for longer trips. For a while now, we’ve been thinking about finding a bus we can use as a daily driver and also take out into the woods for shorter camping trips.

The day we got back, we got an email from someone we’ve been in contact with since February who said she was finally ready to sell her green ’77 Deluxe Westy (SO 76) after taking one last trip to Utah. We sent her our blog ( ), promised her we’d keep “El Tortuga” on the road and get it back to its former glory. She met with us and we were able to make a deal.

We’ve had the Turtle now for a couple of days and think she is in pretty good shape... And with the help of Dave and a body shop, she’ll be rocking it all over the Midwest.


We’d love to get the surface rust sanded out and repainted before it turns into a serious case of cancer. So does anyone have any recommendations for a good body shop in the area?

Moose - 67 Riviera
Crusty - 76 Auto Westy Deluxe
Terrapin - 77 Westy Deluxe
Myka - 03 Rialta FDD

Good looking sage green there. Always has been one of my favorite colors.
Looks like a nice bus .
Just sand and prep that minor rust yourself. You can get sage green mixed into an aerosol can at most paint shops. Easy to blend small areas

Bring it to the Columbia vw sbow tbis weekend and let us mid MO's see it
