One early forum join was for VW Vanagons while I was searching for a Westy. This name reflects the philosophy behind the purchase. Still have the Westy, at least until the big Dodge replacement is ready to go.
And speaking of plates, I thought of this one was back in '06 when we got the Vanagon. In the intervening years nobody got it, probably afraid to admit to their decline. Finally when renewal time came around in the fall it was still available and I took it ironically, since I never actually ever was hip.
