I met Mal Leyland today and he said the reason that they sold the Kombis is because they were too small. They were reliable and the brothers were surprised how good they were off road. They went many places where 4wds would struggle. He gave an interesting talk about meeting his wife. She drove a Beetle. He was already attracted to her and the second time that they met her Beetle wouldn't start. She pulled out an old cloth and removed the distributor cap to clean inside. Replaced the cap and the car started. Mal thought, "How good is this". He was engaged in 3 months and married in 4 1/2 months.
