    As far as bays go, I'd like to see my BC, my '76 Trakka camper and Saphir, my '76 sooobi powered Microbus back on the road, then maybe add a lowlight panel and an SC of any description to the collection and I'd be happy. I'd be happy with just one splitty, not fussed about the year... tho I actually prefer the post '64 big window ones truth be told.

    I also one day intend to own a roundlight watercooled T3 bus, and would love to one day come into posession of a T3 Syncro... if the opportunity ever came up to import a roundlight one without sending myself to the poorhouse I'd be over the moon. A DC T3 would be nice too... tho there were only about 200 or so brought into the country so good luck with that.

    And non-Kombiwise, not overly fussed, however an early Type 3 square would be nice... of and I'd give my left testicle for a Type 3 Karmann Ghia.... :D

    Oh and a Mk1 Golf GTI would be epic...
