    Well people thanks to this forum and its members we have placed a deposit on a camper and have planned to pick it up in two weeks. Don't want to say to much more until we take possession of the old girl but we are very excited to say the least. Stay tuned for plenty of photos and adventures. Cheers Dan & Leisa

    Well thanks to @melissa we drove to Port Macquarie yesterday and met with a fellow forum member @DaveC and Gamarna to pick up our new 73 Camper. Thanks to Dave and Gamarna for meeting us at Port and handing over the keys. I know it must have been tough.
    Had a great drive back to Scotts Head where we are now hunting waves thanks to Cyclone Oma. Stay tuned.

    Thrilled for you Dan! You see people all the time say that quite often the kombi finds you - I think this is one of those occasions. Enjoy :)

    Just had the seats recovered. Although they are not original I went for a vinyl that looked like it came from that era. They look and feel great I reckon.

    Then went to the local VW mechanic guru (VW Salvage) on the GC. Got a full inspection / service done and successfully had a QLD roadworthy certificate issued so I can now transfer NSW to QLD rego. No need for any engineers compliance plates as previously thought - Stoked.
