Microbus Splittie

As a former beetle owner, a current VW owner, and as a Kombi driver around Europe, understandably any VW gathering is still of interest, especially this one at the Oakura Beach campground.

In an earlier life, I've even made the pilgrimage to Wolfsburg with its own shipping canal, robots, Lamborghini sound-light shows - indeed a memorable day.  Wolfsburg is the same place the first split screen kombis were manufactured.  However these two 1960's T1s were built in a purpose built Transporter factory in Hanover.

Sadly the end of this year will see the last iconic Kombi produced.

Another "splittie", only a year or two younger 


 
My mum's focus was elsewhere! not a microbus amongst her sketches.
