I've just aquired a 74 pop-top, after a 28 year hiatus from Kombi ownership. I usually waste my resources on motorbikes and boats, but a bike swap for a nice 75 Beetle a few months ago, reintroduced me to the VW experience. Just sold that Bug yesterday to a happy new owner, and the camper will be in it's place this time next week. I will post some photo's soon after. I tentatively looked at a few Kombi's last year, but they were either too rusty, or way too expensive. There seems to be more "reasonable" vans about right now. My memories of my earlier 74 tintop that served a young (and large) family well for a few years are mostly good, and I certainly remember with fondness its off road ( re; beach! ) ability, and the handiness of being able to "sleep-over" when visiting. Looking forward to many weekends away, fishing and camping out generally. Cheers all, BBH. Hobart Tas.
