    Great pics of W.A.  …. [Wait Awhile]

    The white sandy beach looks like the one at the bottom of my street….and of course the beautiful Indian Ocean.

    I bet your dad’s had some interesting  chats along the way about the Super Camper.

    I’m sure ,there’d be a few envious Grey Nomads out there just lovin’ it.

    Did he drop the HiAce body on the Hilux chassis ?

    How’s the V6 copping with the load ?

    Top way to see the country,and may they stay safe

    I do like the Google Maps time of 102 hours driving from Bendigo to Margaret River….via Darwin ……oh yeah ??

    Thanks for sharing

    Mum has said (numerous times) that Dad is spending ALOT of time talking to strangers about the camper haha

    Yep the body is on a modified Hilux 4×4 chassis, no real dramas with the V6, seems to be travelling well.

    Just realised I hadn’t shared any pics from this year’s desert trip………..

     

    We had heaps more people this year which made it a whole lot more fun!

    So what is the plan for next year? That looks like a good time.

    More of the same Franz!

    I’m hoping we’ll have our Class 11 style KG finished, ’61 coupe with Country Buggy running gear (reduction box rear and hybrid Bug/Bus LP spindles up front)

    5th – 8th June 2020 if you guys are keen for a down under experience 😉

    I’m sure we can find a Baja or 2 for you guys to use!

    Our planned 2020 desert trip should have been last weekend, but we are still in lock down due to COVID-19.

    Whilst it sucks, I’ve spent nearly the whole of last year working away and we haven’t made much progress on any of the off-roaders anyway.

    My buddy Micka, has been chipping away at the jobs remaining on his ghia…..

    Country Buggy running gear is in, basically lifted spindles & bus brakes up front and big nut reduction box rear. It has a fresh 1700cc Stroker Type 1 to go in it.
    Decent tires in the sizes we need are hard to come by in Aus and shipping from the states is $$, so we are running some 195/80r15 tire off the new Suzuki Jimny. they are cheap and plentiful out here, at low pressure should be ok in the sand.

    Winter is just setting in, -3°C (26°F) this morning, so some long nights in the shed coming up so we can have some rides sorted once the good weather is back.
