    Hello kc members

    I have been lucky to come across a split screen kombi van in the bush/peoperty
    All panels have dings missing front doors and glass no running gear at all
    Rust in all the normal places and surface rust and moss in others lol.
    needs a lot of work not rolling.
    The Question is do i get it???

    give me the co-ordinates and i'll let you know if it's worth it. :p

    short answer is yes, go get it. always worth something to someone, question is have you contacted the property owner and negotiated a price?

    Should have left it behind....Sounds like a big square box of rusty metal with nothing inside ??

    Good to hear mate..

    Make sure you get some pics in its original resting spot, Can't wait to see them...

    Do you remember if it has a little window on the back or a big wide one ??

    cheers

    Not sure about a specific post of thread but the forum is a wealth of information, ask the questions and you'll get answers. Either that or get a six pack and troll the forum ! Once you can get some pics up, people will be able to help out with more info . Good luck, go get that bus !

    well done mate, post pics and everyone will tell you what year it is. they're often 'upgraded' by previous owners so could be earlier than we think, but the pics will tell all. if it's a panel van with no side windows cut into it that's a plus.
