    Hello! matt from the Gold Coast here (DrowningBitByBit in honour of my atrocious surfing). I don't have a Kombi yet... I'm just embarking on The Big Search. I had a wedge back in the UK 15 years ago, then planned on getting a Kombi when I got to Australia, but it didn't work out when I was first here... then something came up... then the price went up... then something else came up... etc etc.
    Long story short, after having a little whimper every time I saw a T2 for the last 10 years, I've finally got the cash ready to go for a van for day trips, surf trips, weekend trips and the occasional longer run.

    Good to be here and see the scene still thriving.

    There will be questions.

    Welcome, Matt! Good luck finding your kombi. It took me over year of searching until I found the right one, but it was worth the wait. :)

    Welcome to the Kombi Club Matt! :)

    It’s been proven many times, that Kombi’s do eventually find their owners.

    Enjoy the ride....... ;)

    Hi Matt & welcome to the Kombi Club;). Your bus will find you when it should. Keep searching for your bus & maybe go for a surf with Dan @Surfing72. Looks like he could teach us all a bit:).
    Cheers

    Thanks for the welcome everyone! :)

    The search starts/continues today... by which I mean reading the wonderful threads on things to look for, looking at what's out there, and continually revising my budget upward :rolleyes:
