    if my aunty saw these, she would want me to say she never smoked and that she was just pretending to be Gran.

    in 1969, the year my folks meet, dads olds went to europe for a traveling holiday. They ordered this 1969 low light from the factory to be picked up at the factory in Germany and then drove it around europe for 6 months before shipping it to south africa and selling it to pay for the whole trip.

    i did and i do not see why some IT person can not fix how big the files can be, as lots of people seem to find it hard to get pics up. who should we be asking?

    As far as I am aware Steve, the attachment size limits are imposed by the storage capacity of the site host. But I am always happy to help members upload &/or resize (however I was visiting my mother today, so wasn't online) ... but thanks Harry for posting them up. :)

    I think the proportions look wrong though, so I'll try to fix that tomorrow.

    My '71 Westfalia has exactly those same curtains. Most are faded however... But some are in original condition so I think the colours are pretty accurate comparing with my good curtains. I just wish I could find some replica material.

    This van looks like it has the Stockholm interior.

    I had some help in that I don't use Photobucket so am not hampered by their size restrictions.

    Here are the other photos...

    That's cool, the photos look just like an advertising brochure - no wonder if it was a for sale photo shoot :)
    Pity the story didn't end with the kombi being still in your garage in this condition :p

    Just re-read some of these posts. Apologies to Woz for jumping the gun on fixing the proportions.

    cheers
