    Let me first paint the picture for you.

    My parents & older brother/sister migrated to Australia in 1970. To get here they flew up from Chile to Panama where they boarded a ship which took 3mths to get to Australia arriving in Sydney in Jun 1970. I was born in Jan 1971 (Yes I'm a proud 1st generation Aussie) Now if my calculations are correct that would suggest something happened on the 'Love Boat' ???? Now how does this relate to my story ??

    I was going through some of my mum's old photos and low and behold they took a photo in Panama. Mmmmm... perhaps I was in the picture albiet just a small 'Kombi' embryo ???

    Who'd have guessed they'd start your initiation into Kombi's that early in life :D

    re: Our VW Journey


    Like your thread too. As it so happens my wife grew up with VWs as her dad used to race a 'Powertune' Superbug at Catalina Raceway (in Katoomba but no longer exists), Oran Park (which no longer exists) and Eastern Creek.

    You can read a little more about our VW jounrey at our website:
