I have 2 "Westys", same year, same color scheme, 1 full camper and a weekender.
I am selling the weekender for $6000

or use as downpayment on a VWsynchro-camper (4x4).

I originally bought the weekender for parts for my camper, but then it kept running so well after i gave it new cylinder heads, new steering fluid pump, shocks.....

Ok. I'm always behind the ball. Nothing available at Paddy's wagon. Do they tolerate doubling up on sites? If so, anyone willing to double?

Done this a couple times...... makes great fajitas and such.... I need to get the book...

Manifold Destiny: The One! the Only! Guide to Cooking on Your Car Engine!

How many miles does it take to braise a fish fillet? Should you use your exhaust manifold or your valve cover for a pork tenderloin? Were Jaguars really designed with veal scallopini in mind? In the new revised and expanded Manifold Destiny, Chris Maynard and Bill Scheller, two experienced rally drivers--and cooks--answer these and any other questions you've got about cooking under the hood. After all, why drive to a diner when you can turn your Chevy into one, especially when you can make a better meal right on top of your engine? With a little bit of ingenuity--and a whole lot of aluminum foil--you can whip up dishes like Cutlass Cod Supreme, Cruise-Control Pork Tenderloin, Nifty NAFTA Nachos, Donner Pass Red Flannel Hash, and Fupped Duck Catera. Witty, preposterous, and great highway fun, the more than forty recipes in this cult classic are road-tested and taste-bud-approved. It's a must for anyone hitting the road with an empty stomach and a full tank of gas.


Peace,
Paul

Imagine what you can make on the top empty area of a Type2/4 Bus Motor.... I see a roast w/veggies in the making...... 2 hrs at 55mph....

When i was a little we lived in our car on the road and mom would heat dinner and or my formula , oatmeal/cream of wheat , etc on the radiator/motor... must be why i'm a "Motorhead"....:p

I have a book by those guys called "The Bad For You Cookbook" and it's awesome! All about cooking with lard, deep frying and heavy cream. One quote I recall is; "If it can be poached, it can be fried" Good stuff.

They was louder at the Rainbow. Could be. Oooowie.

Sounds like a great idea! But, would not the vents let in too much cool air and sorta defeat the purpose.....just thinking about it.....

It shouldn't as the food would be sitting on the 200-250 degree block for however long it was supposed to cook.......double wrap some brats and Kraut in foil and place them there for a short drive... Bet they cook pretty well...

Nice book!
We used to warm up cans of beans ect. under the hood of our trucks when I was in the Army. It works good until someone forgets to get the can out and it explodes.
