    On my drive from Inverleigh to Geelong a couple of weeks ago, on The Hamilton Highway and out of the corner of my eye, i drove past 3 or 4 Kombi's and a couple of T3's on a bush property. I managed to turn around go back to the dirt road and i took a couple of images. I think the area was Fyansford. Just thought that was rather interesting and surprising to come across and worth posting.

    Assuming you weren’t trespassing, and the pics you took were from a position on public land, just like “google street view” does, I can’t see an issue in sharing the pics...:rolleyes:

    Sounds like Gary’s stash. He runs Wolfsburg automotive in Geelong. Amazing collection and was lucky to pick up my Fuchs copies off him at a great price. He had planned for a VW museum,think it’s still just a plan Good man for hard to find bits and bobs

    I almost bought that a couple of years ago. They were going to semi restore it for me, but I backed out because I didn't have the funds at the time. Really wish I had seen it through.

    It was their delivery van that they(wolfsburg automotive) used for many years before replacing it with a caddy.

    If I remember correctly, it is an 87 model, and was imported from england(I think? Or maybe germany) where it had been used as a postage services vehicle or something similar. It had quite an interestingly shaped roof that I hadn't seen before.

    A local mates Kombi just out of Central Tilba at a place called Retreats at Gongwana, he owns the hippy shop in Tilba and another Kombi that I have posted here in the spotted thread, this place is where they all go to relax, the creek that constantly flows through there is now dry and has stinking burnt eels laying in the bottom of the creek bed, extremely hard to imagine, they estimate the temperature as it went through at 1100 degrees C as it turned their 4 rose quarts candle holders and a big clear quarts in the centre of their yurt to dust, a couple of day after this pic was taken Sol the owner went to a friend place to fire prep and while cleaning up leaves and sticks to help protect that property he was there cleaning a roof that he thought was metal he fell through the old alsonite roof sheet landing on his face on a rock wall, knocking himself unconscious with eyes wide open, his mate thought that he was dead, a few minutes later he started to groan coming too and he had broken his jaw with a golf ball size blood clot above the jaw, rough time for him but I asked today how he is and he is up and about and playing his flute with his teeth wired together, unbelievable string of events for the man, cheers Greg

    Tough stuff Greg. That's an amazing amount of heat. Good enough to melt steel!
