    Hey folks, a couple of years ago back when I was T3-negative I left a note on a local Ballarat T3, that I would see around town, asking to call me should they decide to sell. A few days ago, he called to say it's for sale. Of course I'm now T3-positive and flat broke so declined. So, an 89' Caravelle blue 7 seater same as mine is for sale in Ballarat if anyone's interested. Asking $4000.00 Apparently started at $6000.00 a while back. I do remember it being pleasing to the eye. I have name and number if interested.

    cheers,
    Mark.

    We'll all be kicking ourselves in 30 years time when T3's are pricey as hell and rare as rocking horse poo.

    Quote from the future c2033. "I remeber when bays and splits where cool and everyone hang crap on the T3 owners. They couldn't give them away back then".

    I should get the one for sale and garage it for 30 years, then as I drag it out in the morning sun in 2033 it'll be accompanied with a brief burst of soaring orchestral music.

    As a proud T3 owner, I wouldn't swap it for a T2! At 6ft tall I can't comfortably fit behind the wheel and the comfort of driving sh#@s on most T2's. Don't diss these wonderful Kombis :D:rolleyes:

    Really? Can't fit behind a T2 wheel? My husband (the boy, the family call him) is a little over 6' and it's not an issue! Of course it must be those Porsche 944 seats we have in it! I am 5' and my feet don't touch the floor:rolleyes:

    T2's are those things you see in the rear vision mirror for a brief time!
