    Hello Col! Thanks so much. I will for the next one!

    Happy to make known colour and price as really, the owner was not honest with me. It is a grey green with cream top. VW Colour apparently but I don't know the name. And was asking $38,000 now $34,500. Looked pretty :-(

    Col, I have been offered a 'cleaned up' Kombi and have photos. But am worried as it is not 'restored' and it's pretty top dollar. Through a reputable dealer I think. I'll private message you. As it is in your part of the world...

    I am obviously meant to be the new Kombi Club member that makes all the classic newbie mistakes! Let's hope I get them all out of the way before I hand any more money over!

    I just don't understand how these busses are advertised for over $30k without even providing a RWC. Even if buying interstate, a RWC has to provide some level of comfort? Also, not referring to this bus in particular, but alarm bells ring when I read 'only a few small issues stopping it from being roadworthy'. If they are so small, just fix them I say. Rant over!

    Totaly agree Paul.
    It means the seller is either too lazy and has expectations that everyone is stupid enough to do his work for him, or he is well aware that the items are going to cost dearly but is too greedy to lower his fantasy pricing.

    Anyone who buys deserves to get ripped for being a mug.

    If seller not providing RWC and un registered = they know it's a heap of shit and going to cost $$$$$$ to make it roadworthy.
