    Mark,
    Welcome aboard. I grew up in the Gong and with lots and friend and rellies down there it's good to see more Kombis from the area represented in the Club. And a lowlight too!

    Get yourself down to Berry next Sun for a great day of VW's. There was heaps of Kombis there last year.

    Cheers,...John

    Hi Mark, welcome to the KC monkeyhouse.:D
    OK, Illawarra & South Coasters let's see if we can get something organised for a cruise/lunch/coffee. If they can do it on the Central Coast surely we can come up with something.
    Any suggestions for a destination & date?

    Dents are kinda like crooked teeth I reckon, gives you character (I don't have crooked teeth btw). Great find Mark, a nice looking Lowlight. Great colour too. Do red kombis go faster?

    Hey man, slow starter but just came across your pic. My bus is exactly the same coloring, but not a lowlight, think I've passed you a few times in bellambi, we should park em next to one another

    G'day Mark,
    Welcome to KC, the Gong is aperfect spot to own a Kombi, ironically i had to sell mine when I moved there cause I had no where to park it.
    I like the colour and original character of you bus, it looks like a daily driver.
