    Only got her on the road just over a week ago and already been to Valla, dropped a cradle around to my sister the other night and took a load of rubbish to the dump today, could not have done that in my daily drivers.

    Now maybe time for a new motor, disk brakes and flick the reduction hubs...

    I picked up a 3 piece corner lounge from Fantastic Furniture the other week :D I'm not going to pay them $35 to deliver it when all I had to do was remove the seats :wink:

    Amazing what you can fit into a Kombi - would have been lost without Igor when we moved house 12 months ago :lol:

    Took 3 wheely bins to the tip in my fully fitted out camper (do it each week cos we have no garbage service here :roll:), and a heavy trailer load of garbage, crap and scrap metal to the tip today with BC... and came back home with a set of shelves in the trailer often pick up hay and lucern mulch for the horse and chooks in BC too... and she doubles as the property paddock-bashing hack heheh... she's a workhorse and a half indeed! :cool:

    Also came back from the wreckers once with a whole ND Pajero zorst and windscreen and various other car bits fitted in the back... and it all got home nice and safe! :), have towed a Kombi, NH Pajero, VH and VN Commodore, and Mini Moke with it at various stages too... not too much of an issue with any of em... Not bad considering how old and tired her heart is... :D

    Hmmmm... I ythink I need to sweep out my kombi... havnt been swept for months... I got lazy and put a flattened box on the floor and havent cleaned it since hehehe :lol:
