    2 Hour drive south west for this event after overcast on the bay and sighting cloud on the hill before the challenge of going up the range only to be greeted by sunshine and things in full swing @ 9.15am (start time was 9.00am).:eek:

    Barely got out of Paddy and before I could walk around to passenger side after being greeted by VZR69 (Greg) then someone wanting to know if I wanted a Type3 towbar - ah no but I'll consider o_O. Finally get to passenger side and old dubber pulls up behind me in his Mk1 Golf - greetings passed and then more talkers while I'm trying to work out where I put the car keys, find them & escape to hear you said the camera wasn't coming out of the bag and there's Stu - ah well have to please some BUT sorry pictures will have to wait until I get around to down/upping them :p.

    Very well planned and attended event so compliments to the KlubVW committee.;)

    For Marcus a thumbs up out the window as he passed me in the 69VWU followed by the camper on the highway home - mmmmm some k's down the road passed them - it was me in the Irish Green Type3 in case you wondered who it was :eek:.

    Was great to get out to a new event, catch up with friends and long time no see people - Paddy enjoyed the highway cruising but less favourable with city traffic and bloody traffic lights up Gympie Rd.

    Great pictures! I hardly took any, so glad you posted them. Was nice to see Paddy in the flesh.
    Yes, the organisers did a good job. Was a long run up from Brisbane, but was a great day out.

    Is the owner of "81 bus" on here? The white and yellow T3. I never got a chance to have a good look, but was wondering on the radiator on an '81??
    Not sure if either it is/was a factory diesel, or if it had been converted to water cooled at some stage? The only diesels I have seen locally were imports and later models, similar I have not seen a factory water cooled pre-'83 (all diesels I think)

    Andy, managed to catch your 411 in one of the pictures ..... thought I took one of it by itself :rolleyes: but may have been too many people walking aimlessly in front while trying so gave up.

    As for 81BUS I'm not sure if owner is on here ...... it was part of the Wippell's 60 years of Transporter display so they possibly will know the owner ;)

    VZR69 said there were 150 in the show but I expect closer to 200 when you walked around and saw what was outside the marked area :cool:

    Glad you had a good day.
    The yellow/white T3 (81bus) belongs to Neil Batterham who is a Klub VW committee member. Its Subaru powered.
    Determined to get one of my own veedubs at the show by next year instead of working on my kids rides!
