Not mine, but my grandmother's '70 Westy that my wife and I took on a honeymoon camping trip around our home state of Colorado over the past week. I didn't get nearly enough pictures of the bus until the last two days of the trip, but they're certainly good ones.

Nice! That seems like it would have been right before it started getting too heavily developed and expensive, but maybe that's just my perspective. I miss being able to afford to snowboard there.

Well, since my little brother bought a slightly Frankensteined little '74 standard a few weeks back, my dad and I have been working on getting it ready for life in Chicago as his only car, so we saw fit to do some junkyarding for the harder-to-find parts.

Here are four of the bugs we found, the fifth wasn't worth getting anything off of.



Once we'd gotten our little stash of parts together, we hid them and took a little walk around the yard to admire some of the scrap. This is one of the last really old-school junkyards around, and there are cars in here older than my grandparents. This Edsel, for instance, has been in here since both my parents were in diapers.



Eventually though, the heat got to us and we decided to get out of there, having some beer outside an abandoned house across the dirt road from the yard before finding a brewery with some food options.




So between the drive too and from the junkyard, the drive to Denver later that night, and the drive home yesterday, it ended up being a solid 200 mile weekend for my old warhorse. Hopefully y'all got out and did some fun stuff with your weekends!
