Newbie Questions!

Greetings all, my wife and I are looking to buy a Westy and have a couple questions that we were hoping you all could help us with. First, is it possible to get a good working Westy with a budget of roughly $10000. Also, how much in maintenance and repair costs can we expect to pay in 1) the first couple months and 2) over the first couple years. I know these answers will vary depending on what we buy initially, but if you could give us ball park figures from your experience, that would be awesome. Also, any suggestions about things to look for when buying and good places to look to buy them would be much appreciated.

Do an internet search for Westfalias for sale, and check and Craig's list. I suspect for $10K you can only find very old WEstys with high mileage and higher maintenance costs.
