    I just fell into the "Trap". Lol
    Migrated from Swedish to english to German over a long span.
    I guess the logical step was the move from a British 4wd tourer to a German camper that I can easily fix.
    No more cooling leaks. Lol. Only air. :)

    I thank all who have helped me get my passion underway. Sadly the Porsches have been neglected.
    Summer will revitalize that !!!!

    I met another of the early kombi club guys in hobart. I was a uni student with a bay window ('79) that car was sold then written off..... Alot has changed since then. I do find myself coming back from time to time, hoping to find that split I have always wanted.

    My bus was running a little rough on a road trip from melbourne ..i saw a tidy kombi in the car park at Airlie beach...left a note on its windscreen...asking if they knew a Kombi Mechanic in the area
    Later that evening i got a text...."the kombi club recommends Paul Wilson in mackay"..never heard of the kombi club until then.
    I ended up staying at paul wilson's place...well sleeping in my van in his driveway.
    A few months later ...i was in Nimbin..and i met Lorraine...who insisted that i go on the kombi konvoy from Byron to Nimbin....since then have been to lots of KC events

    I bought a couple of front seats for my Kombi off Ebay from a guy called Nathan in Wonthaggi who's crazy into oval beetles. When I went to pick them up, we chatted a bit, he gave me a heap of advice and pointed me in the direction of this forum.

    Not sure how and why I joined on 15 October 2005. It is one site I visit almost on a daily basis. Thanks to Roy for his support to make this forum happen.
