Not practical but cool. I'm a Kombi fan, when I had one it was close to the ultimate, had it up tracks that I'd never thought it would go along beaches further than I'd thought I'd get, but always wanted something quicker.

This has a WRX engine in it , but just couldn't part with the $84k to have it, rather an EK or a HR @ a fraction of the price

Yallingup car park still has the odd classic. A 9'6" gun needs a split screen combi.

Cool,tassiedevel,yeah the old Kombi's are getting hard to come by in original condition but are worth good money restored now but you have to put good money into them to get them restored unless you do it yourself.I've always liked the old 60s &70s Kombi's.
Nah it's not an EH,it's either a XR or XT Falcon!...

Yeah, that's Bruce, nice bloke, he's a bit like Big Spazz, he just loves lots and lots of foam.

When it's really big around our way, you can almost always be certain that he'll be sitting way out the back somewhere on his 12 foot Munoz just watching and waiting to put his name on the wave of the day

oh, and I really like the way he kept that truck a bit rat, I like it when they look like they actually do some work.
