Postie delivers well not quite what you think. You hear the stories of an old barn find which some are true and others you never hear of again. This started about 6-8 months ago when my father goes and visits an Irishman (no joke) every Wednesday for a coffee,chat. It is the Irishman's regular postman that had seen my fathers beetle parked out the front of Irishman's house. Which one day the postman mentioned to the Irishman that his father used to own Volkswagens and has parts at his parents house. As the Irishman and my father have coffee one day this conversation with the postman gets mentioned. It takes about a month or two before the Irishman is able to get the postie's number. The first phone call to the postie fades all hopes of anything as we found out that the posties parents had offered the parts to an NRMA battery replacement worker. It was again months later that the postie mentions to the Irishman that the NRMA worker hadn't turned up and that the parts where still there to give him another phone call. Phone call was made and to arrive this Saturday at 10:am at his parents house. We arrived to see pieces everywhere, a lot more than what we had expected. We have to go back to pick up the rest. It's mainly early 60's period parts for a beetle. Some of it is perished, others have been used and some new in boxes. Sorting through the boxes to see what is what good or bad. Storage is tight now. It is true about the stories you hear,when you get an Irishman and Australian postie involved you would surely think someone is pulling your leg (bad joke)but no it does happen.
