Today I contacted Monty's original owner. Erwin is 81 and he owned Monty for all but 6 months before we bought him on Ebay almost 4 years ago. I tracked Erwin down when we first got Monty and he filled me in on his history and it was obvious how it had pained him to part with his beloved work 'truck'. Andy and I promised to look after 'his truck' and one day try to visit him to show him that we had kept that promise. Well Erwin lives 1100 klm south of here and just happens to be close to Narooma where we will be attending this years Bus Stop We may never get another opportunity to show him off to Erwin so it's Monty who will be packed and heading south this time and not our camper Molly. Erwin was so excited when I told him today, I offered to drive up to see him but he insists on driving down to Narooma to meet us and look at everyone's kombis. Unfortunately his wife Jan is now in a nursing home and won't be able to make the trip. I can't wait to meet Erwin and look forward to hearing what he thinks of what we have done to 'his truck'.
