    man, i swear to god in the past 48 hours i have seen more kombi's than i have ever witnessed. starting off yesterday, went for a skate with my mates, saw a great blue bay so we parked next to it and got a photo, the guy was with the kc as well! but unfortunately his girlfriend (i think) told me he was selling it. then later on that day spotted a green bay and gave it a wave, then later on driving to my girlfriends house spotted another blue bay parked near her street. wakeup, this morning havnt even got out onto gympie road yet and find myself behind and next to a light orange camper and spent a majority of the trip back behind it, then also spotted a green bay driving past and gave it a wave. as we were driving past rothwell i saw another blue bay driving past and then as we were out for lunch at redcliffe a pink camper drove past. i thought that would have been it for the day, but driving her to sandgate station and i managed to squeeze in one last white bay parked on the side of the road. please tell me people on here own some of these cars! it really made my day.

    here is a picture of the first bay we spotted and my mate dan

    I always see kombis when I am not in one :mad: and I have to try and hold back my wave. I forget sometimes and just go for it, so if you see a crazy woman waving like mad at you and she's not in a kombi - that'll be me! :p

    Ben, I think the blue one that you snapped is Little Joe. I think. It looks awefully similar to him if it isn't.
