Bus is an un-restored French Westy and had only covered approx. 64,000 miles when purchased 8 years ago. The qualifying BWA run was its first ever trip down the strip and was complete with Westy racks front & rear, Stainless Steel Hurst on the front and a full Westy interior. The aim now is to get into the 15's.
 
Thanks to my wife Gwen, Shaun & Smiggy at VW Scene and Johnny Maher. It's been a long emotional road but we got there in the end!
