    Just a quick post to say "Hi"

    Had a great trip to the bus stop at Maleny and met a great bunch of people from all over Australia.

    Amanda and I bought Eva (was Henry, just can't do the boy thing with Kombi's, Sorry) from Bondi Beach about 4 weeks ago, drove her back and had a great time. Now we are starting to fix her up and get everything working like it should.

    Hope to post a few things as she progresses through her change from unloved to loved condition.

    Cheers
    Justin Lush

    G’day and welcome Justin.

    Be good if you can bang some pics up or tell some details as to what you have.

    Good that it’s a driver.
    Must be fairly solid if you went from Bondi to Maleny on your first trip?

    Cheers Barry,

    We did the trip from Bondi back to Brisbane over 4 days, didn’t want to push her to hard.

    Then when she got home a dropped it 4 inches as it was raised and had mud tyres ( very noisy on the way back).

    Anyway, she is a 1976 Kombi 1.8l type 4 motor twin carb, pop top with a queen bed.

    I’ll post some photos.

    Welcome to the KC Justin and Amanda, good to meet both of you at Maleny, blue van (my avatar) on the opposite side of the oval from you. Hope you enjoy yourself, wherever Eva takes you.

    Welcome to the Kombi Club Justin & Amanda & Eva,
    Good story & you made the effort to a wet Bus Stop within 4 weeks of ownership. You truly are Kombi owners:rolleyes:.
    Seems some knowledge given your description of Eva. Got a back story for us re that knowledge:confused:.
    That bus looks like it's got some stories to tell as you go about doing the "fix up" so please share as you discover. Sopru pop top. Any interior?
    Cheers

    We also camped at Valley of the Dubs the weekend before too!! (Ironically I got sunburnt then!! Lol)
    We met some awesome people then and met even more at Bus Stop!
    Looking forward to more camping adventures with kombi owners.

    Saw your van at Maleny but precipitation made it difficult to catch up with people.
    You will be an 'old hand' Kombi traveler by Dubbo. See you there.
    Enjoy the ride!
