Wife said there is no way she would go up that mountain with me.I left her and my son at the 11,000 foot level of Pike's Peak back in 1982 ..... I drove on up (14,114 feet) in my first VW Diesel (1980 Rabbit) ........ it sure needed a turbo.

EDIT: Ironically, 140 years ago today (8/18/1873) was the first ascent of Mt. Whitney (14,505 ft).............
'84 Vanagon '02 ALH TDI engine Malone Stage 1 tune. CAT, SS 2" exhaust, E-vac system, DMF with upgrade pilot shaft, 4.57 R&P, fan assisted IC. (32 to 35+ MPGs consistently)
