    You should have rung them and said someone stole all your parts when it was parked on the street and it needs towing to the panel shop to have new ones fitted :D

    You need to get creative Grant - or break down more often to get some value out of it!

    I just figure that my 30 years of payments, helps to pay for the other less maintained or unreliable Kombi’s, (seem to not be T3’s), that really do need a tray top ride. ;)

    Carole did a pretty good job of that:). Photos at 130kph:oops: is talent (just lying folks:p). I waved & smiled:cool:. Can't ask more than that when you've been overtaken by another Kombi;). Good grace:D. If I decided to split from the komvoy I was in, the photo would have been my rear bumper bar not yours;):p:D.
    Cheers

    Be fair! I slowed from T3 speed, to Bay speed, to help get the pics taken....

    I did have to split from the Komvoy earlier, to find a stopping spot up the road, to take the earlier pics..... ;)

    Appreciate the pics & effort taken:D.
    No doubt an empty T3 is agile;). As is a T2 camper solid & has inertia (& speed on a downhill:p)
    Cheers

    I could try with the same equipment as Greg, but only get half the result.

    The operator is the impressive bit, with an excellent eye for frame and subject. ;)

    They probably contained cold beers, and needed to get to the destination ready to deliver......;)

    :D And a big thanks to be greeted with a cold beer on my front seat after check in;):):D delivered by cargo:oops::D.
    I'm obviously a 'window down' driver despite the excess speed:p.

    Did anyone else notice the Nissan Patrol parked off to one side, on the airfield, with the windscreen sticker “kings of bass”, pumping out the excessive subs? o_O - The only downside to Old bar 2018.

    It was pretty bad on Sunday around the oval, but I found the true awfulness on Sat morning, whilst in a stationary traffic jam on the main drag of Old Bar.

    This vehicle was stopped directly behind, and decided to turn up the “Uber cool” subs:confused:........... with the T3 windows and my chest vibrating in a really bad way, it was so unbearable, I had to turn right into the next side street, just to get away. :eek:

    I don’t get it...... it’s just a really annoying thing to buy / install / do......unless the owner is actually deaf. :(

    They have a "sound off" - its listed on the program. Maybe its entertainment for the non-kombi people?

    Yes, did hear that one, shocker!! Patrols often are upgraded with loud sound making devices so the nearest Landcruiser can find them when they need a tow!!
