    Iím pretty sure the dinosaurs died out when they stopped gathering food and started having meetings to discuss gathering food

    A bookshop is one of the only pieces of evidence we have that people are still thinking

    about 40 years ago my mate had a vw county buggy, a very square looking thing. Had balloon tyres on it. That used to float. Went through a water hole about 400 metres long and 1 to 1.2 deep on the balfour track and float all the way with the wheels providing the drive. Then spent the next 3 hrs winching the 3 four wheel drivs with us. Boy oh boy they were ****ed off. Only real problem was it would regularly do steering boxes.
    cheers

    Do you mean like this one on carsales? Been up for sale for a while....

    New & Used Volkswagen Country cars for sale in Australia - carsales.com.au


    I often keep an eye out for Type 182's (right hand drive Type 181) as well. A really nice one just sold for less than $20K. This militarised Type 182 version is still up but quite pricey.

    The big question is, km/h or miles/h?
