    You'll have to spend less time on the big things and ghost towns maps.

    any chance Kombi camping places can be added to this map to give the Kombi Konnection - camping spots; some perspective so one can easily organise a trip from campsite to campsite.

    Not sure if this is where this question belongs....
    We drive down North Road..in Melbourne everyday from Sassafras to Bayside suburbs.....
    We have always craned our necks to see what Kombi is in the yard/workshop for the past six years at a place called TUCKER MOTORS - North Road (Wellington Road) East Bentleigh! There are always VW's there....always! Has anyone had any experience with this mechanic thru this forum?

    Forward thinking I am being....might just need some-one honest, reliable & knows what they are doing.

    I did notice some-one had put them forward to add to map......

    Yes, they used to be on the corner of tucker rd and north rd... hence the name tucker rd motors. I bought a 1300 deluxe beetle about 20 years ago with a dead motor. They rebuilt it to about 1600 and it never gave any problems for 4 years. cost $1500 for the rebuild. at about 4yrs it threw a rod... I took it back to them and they fixed it for $300. It was good until the day I sold it.
    Provided it is still the same guys running it, then yes they know their stuff.

    hope that helps.

    So ... much ... updating ... needed.

    Thanks everyone! I will get back onto it very soon, as it is now a bit out of date - certainly I want it to be much more accurate and up to date before next Easter's big trip to the Bus Stop, when it will be a back up just in case we need it (but hopefully we won't!) :D

    Oh and just because I can be a bit random, I have also been creating precise google maps to every Big Thing around Australia (as online sources are vague and incomplete) as well as abandoned or near-abandoned "Ghost Towns" just so we have somewhere to park our kombis for memorable pics. Ï will post them up when they are complete.

    Excellent initiative Woz!

    Great resource for those on the road, like me at the moment.

    Can recommend another Sydney listing. I haven't used them lately, but have had good service from them in the past:

    Thanks

    Hey Woz,

    Another one for your next update: Miss D's new mechanic - Nick at Protune Automotive Dyno Centre at 44-46 Deering St, Ulladulla Ph: 44541425. He's a kombi tragic like the rest of us, has a kombi in the workshop in the process of being rebuilt, and has just done a sterling job on Miss D's latest service tuning her up the drive to this year's Bus Stop as well as an overall health check. She's purring like a kitten :0)
