    Got me guessing - think Mark was who I bought Paddy the Type 3 Fastback from.

    Steve Baker - how does that sound ..... I got to stop buying these 2nd VW's as there are to many names to remember :confused:

    Yes !!
    Steve baker....that's him.
    See your ute around regularly.
    Appears that Steve loves it as much as you did.
    It's always immaculate......

    Interesting thread! Love the pic of the General Vee in its hay day.
    Yes saved it from the wreckers and I think virus chaos helped me get it for a good price.
    Good solid T3 all up but worried about the gearbox. Thought it would be the external linkages but they are brand new, 2nd and 3rd are a bit of a worry.
    Will pull it out over easter, the fun begins. :oops:

    Thanks for the welcomes!! Have been doing my T3 apprenticeship whilst in lock down. Removing 36 years of filth has been a challenge...
    Seems to be quite a few T3" Nutters in this club.
