    On my drive from Inverleigh to Geelong a couple of weeks ago, on The Hamilton Highway and out of the corner of my eye, i drove past 3 or 4 Kombi's and a couple of T3's on a bush property. I managed to turn around go back to the dirt road and i took a couple of images. I think the area was Fyansford. Just thought that was rather interesting and surprising to come across and worth posting.

    Assuming you weren’t trespassing, and the pics you took were from a position on public land, just like “google street view” does, I can’t see an issue in sharing the pics...:rolleyes:

    Sounds like Gary’s stash. He runs Wolfsburg automotive in Geelong. Amazing collection and was lucky to pick up my Fuchs copies off him at a great price. He had planned for a VW museum,think it’s still just a plan Good man for hard to find bits and bobs

    I almost bought that a couple of years ago. They were going to semi restore it for me, but I backed out because I didn't have the funds at the time. Really wish I had seen it through.

    It was their delivery van that they(wolfsburg automotive) used for many years before replacing it with a caddy.

    If I remember correctly, it is an 87 model, and was imported from england(I think? Or maybe germany) where it had been used as a postage services vehicle or something similar. It had quite an interestingly shaped roof that I hadn't seen before.

    Imported from England as my wheels were off this van and had English markings
