I’ve lost track of how long this build has been sitting in my drafts, but I look at it every time I access the back-end of the site and check it’s link for updates but sadly come up empty handed. It’s one of the many threads out there that sit forever in cyber limbo, forgotten or neglected by their owners for whatever reason, the prospect of another update dwindling, sustaining life only by the few readers who bump the thread periodically with an optimistic “any updates?”, or “what ever happened to this?”. Well, I don’t care if it isn’t finished, or if it ever will be, because I think it’s cool enough for everyone to check out, even if only for the amount of awesome garage photos there are.
If I ever have the opportunity (and I hope I do) to travel down the air cooled VW path, my weapon of choice would definitely be a Type 3 wagon. I just love the shape, ever since I first saw one back in highschool with deep black paintwork and brightly contrasting chrome, I’ll never forget it. But enough reminiscing, there’s an interesting story about the wagon in this feature. From what I can gather, apparently it started it’s life as an Australian Delivered model which was imported at some point during it’s lifespan over to the United Kingdom. The story picks up in the present day with the wagon being restored with the utmost detail to show-standards, before being sold to a lucky buyer back in, you guessed it, Australia.
Thanks to Chris for submitting.
