Got us a Kombi!

I've been an infrequent contributor to the forum recently, what with work, the season & other interests in my spare time taking my focus away from bikes. But this is one of the outcomes....

1971 VW Kombi camper.

Left hand drive so my American bubs are welcome to tour around with us if they can make it down our way and it's rear engined just like Randy's Porsche! Yes Randy, that's a hint.
Excellent back to the metal restoration with a new engine. A true credit to the prior owner who spent 2 and a half years on the restoration.

Should be picking up it next weekend.

Very nice. They are fast becoming collectible here too.
Just watch out for all the tourists driving on the wrong side of the road.

Great to see you on the forum again Dave. Nice toy and it could be converted to carry a bike for a trackday

They are fantastic things aren't they. My wife hired a 1974 camper for my 40th this year when we went back to Scotland. Great few days cruising around with the kids. I'd love one of these or a splitty but they're no cheap at all.

Very cool Dave!

I have fond memories of a (somewhat horrific at the time) road trip in a VW Microbus in the '70s. I believe that the one I tripped in used exhaust-surround heat exchangers (or some sort of weird coil system) to generate heat for the cabin, and did so quite unsuccessfully. As it was winter, it was a bit of a problem. One which we could only address by continually numbing our senses.

The Microbus loaded with 5-6 people struggled to go up hills and was drafty as hell, but it was a memorable road trip.

Those in the condition of yours seem to be appreciating in value dramatically in the States.

Enjoy!
