    Awards & More at Castle Hill did a great job on making this Best Split Window Kombi Award, I wonder which lucky variant Split Window Kombi will take this home....

    Good luck to all Split Window Kombi participants but mainly I really look forward to a great safe day, catching up & meeting new & old VW enthusiasts

    Still mulling over whether to take the '71 or to take the Landrover and do photo runs... Still a few days to decide.
