    20210802_121020 Barney – my 54 standard sunroof

    This one has a special place in my heart too, my Father is like a bloodhound when it comes to finding lost VW’s. This one is one of his favourites too…

    I hope you’re doing well Rob, long time no chat.

    Rhett.

    Screw it. Lets do 1980’s graphics or scallops. Rossi head lights no less. 😂 I used to own this one years ago. Built by a guy in Colorado 09EA8017-FEEF-4960-9471-758BA02D1562

     

    This was my favourite bus ever when I was a kid, I sketched it all the time.

    Hey Zack,

    Something I thought might make things a bit more user friendly is a site navigation at the bottom of each page as well as the top?

    eg; Home/Bullshit/Website Updates

    Saves you scrolling back up to the top to navigate after reading a page?

    “Notch on Air” and “Snow Plow” were on loop for me back in the day.

    So cool to see them again!

    Hey Rusty,

    What’s the story with this thing? Did you get it sorted and legal? Any updates?

    Man that’s incredible, very jealous!

    Mine is about $700 ($460USD) per car, for the 2 daily drivers, to the state.

    I also have 3 cars on “Club Permits” so have to be a member of a car club and car must be more than 25 years old, limited to 90 days use a year. $180ea ($127USD) per year.

    Then each has to have private insurance, on top of that.

    Holy shit!

    That’s unbelievable!

    Is that paid to the state? or for insurance incase of an accident?

    Out of interest, what does it cost you guys annually to have a car registered?

    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.
