Grounds for dismissal...

Toby disappointed us all on Wednesday evening when he suddenly turned up with this:

He seems to have it in his head that just owning a VW is not enough but that he should "restore" it and "finish" it. Hopefully these crazy notions will never catch on! The big smile on his face said it all though, a happy man and his type 2 freshly on the road.

There's a few small things to be resolved, a sticking Carb and the cab being short of 4 sets of seatbelts being the main points, before it can make it to Bug Jam in July - these should be sorted by the end of the year. Toby hasn't had much chance to drive it yet but the 1776 engine feels strong and should be easily capable of pulling a family of 6 and all their clobber about.

  1. Hmmm......does this mean Toby can now use the 'M40 motorway maintenance' lanes on the school run??
