I thought I would reflect on a different era when splits were not for wealthy people - a long time ago.

Check out the features:
1) Hand painted "Gorgosaurus" on both sides - wicked.
2) Cut out rear wheel arches for big sand tyres to do beach work - way to go.
3) Pop rivited air intakes to improve engine cooling - dubious.

Thats me on the left hand side and my bro on the right who painted the dinosaurs. He got bored one day and just painted.

Check out the curtains - not sure why I needed them.

This was one serious offroad vehicle.

Things just are not the same anymore.

Err No.
But I do like how he (or she) has kept the rear view mirror on the left hand side at the front - safety first, top marks.

By the way what is the white screen for - skulduggery

Safety? I think it should have red flags on the ends of the load.

I think the white screen is the canopy setup.

I like the dinosoar.

I bought my first kombi in Canberra from a car lot- Got a panel and window bus for $300.-- Took bits off the van to make the kombi and gave the panel to the mechanic helping me out.

Those were the days-

Most abuse I ever gave a bus was moving from New Jersey to Oregon with all my stuff in winter.
