A couple of years ago a friend asked me to look at a kombi for someone he knew who was in the market for a kombi. No problems I had a look at the old girl and pointed out list of things that needed attention and pointed some areas that could be a problem and left it at that. I was talking to my friend today and he filled me in on the rest of the happenings. The person bought the kombi and proceed to get it fixed up and recently it was ready for rego. Getting it registered is where the trouble has begun - it turns out the kombi was reported stolen about 6 years ago. The current "owner" who has just spent I presume a reasonable sum buying the kombi than getting it repaired is now in a very unpleasant position. The point of this story is if your looking at buying a kombi or any other car for that matter - do your due diligence do at get a revs check done contact the rta make sure what you are buying is ripe for the buying.
