This thing's been bugging me for a while, but has resurfaced twice in the last week. Nearly all of my friends, colleagues, and family simply adore our '85 Westy, but try to convince them that it is a good investment, reliable, useful, fun, servicable, etc. and they will not believe me.
/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gifI enjoy reading the new message boards and the sense of community found here, I realize that there's no sense trying to preach to "we, the converted...", but the misconceptions that people have about these excellent vehicles are truly unjust.
I would like to put the question out there to you guys/gals: Have you had these types of experiences (the ones closer to home [ ie. family] are most annoying), and how have you handled them?
