OK.
I thought I saw that you had signed up for the Cleveland tour event so I thought you were in the area and I wanted to know what dealer you found the eco-boost at.
Oh well, I'll just wait for the tour event to get my foot into one.

I'll be at the 9:30 AM event. If you (or anyone else) will be there at the same time we can team up against the reps.

THIS is where the real difference comes from re Sprinter vs Transit. The Ford channels are just far more developed outside of ultra urban enviros

Funny LarryPDX,

I also have a VW Westfalia and though i love it, ultimately its too small for traveling with all the outdoor gear we bring. Its my current daily driver though and super reliable. Cant wait to see how the transit plays out over the next few months.

I'm currently restoring a VW 78 CEII Westfalia, I realize its too small too, when I finish I'm may sell it and buy a promaster or a transit depending on the reviews of the diesels models. Pre 79 VW buses are now selling at a premium and quite sought after for rust free ones so don't give it away. Lots of europeans are buying them and shipping them back.

When you drive the Transit 3.2 diesel you will like it. After 2 Sprinters, it's a very refreshing change to drive a diesel that acts & runs like a gasser
