My other garage queen is a 1983.5 VW Vanagon Westfalia. First of the water-cooled VW boxers. The ultimate evolution of that line.
Bosch fuel injection (primitive, but shared with the Porsche 914). I've owned it about 8 years and my gal and I have humped this thing all over the Intermountain West. Not a Syncro, but still part billy goat. It gets into lots of out of the way places. Lots of upgrades - including a GoWesty-built 2.3L Wasserboxer. Someday (if I kill it), I may do a Subaru conversion.
I just completed installing a new propane tank on it. Turns out the old one is completely rebuildable. Some of the fittings were aging (34 years old) and some stations balked at filling it. I think what I'm going to do now is sandblast, repaint and install new fittings and run a dual tank. Haven't decided yet, though, as the single tank easily lasts an entire season.
