    We are Sam and Sam and Flo is our 1976 white Sopru kombi. Girl Sam has always wanted one so her and her dad have been buying kombi shells and restoring them. BUT when Boy Sam asked Girl Sam to MARRY him (!!!) Girl Sam's dad bought them this very well-looked-after, mechanically-tidy kombi to start their adventures in!

    We are just starting to tinker with little things- Boy Sam is installing a radio that works as I type, we have a double ended cigarette charger to mount, and I am keen to redo the flooring!

    Cannot wait to seek everyones wisdom, resources and stories!!

    I posted in the "buying and selling help" forum a few weeks ago to see if there were any members in or near the town of Seventeen Seventy, QLD to go and have s look at a bus up there, no one responded but this was the one. I helped but cant claim responsibility, it was all Steve's plans and generosity!! Steve is girl Sam's dad, I am boy Sam's dad.....I know, its confusing, but awesome!!
