a strange Sunday morning vehicle sighting...

Across the road from Richard's house this morning...
A kombi van converted into a ute...and a dual cabin one at that...only in Australia! And a huge surprise in conservative old Canberra. It must have taken a wrong turn somewhere :)
Put a smile on my face anyway.

  1. It looks like it could have been an extra in a 'Thomas the Tank' spin-off series.

    Someone has really put some thought into it's 'creation'.

  2. It's great, isn't it? They're cool old cars. I think I may have seen a ute conversion down here in Tasie too - fits right at home in our quirky little state :)
    Have a great Sunday x

  3. My Dad used to have a light blue Kombi ute back in the day when they used to be popular. We had a white Beatle and a yellow Kombi van too. Thanks Kerry, that's brought back some memories of my childhood. xx

  4. A friend here in Bath has a 4WD version - you either love 'em or hate 'em. The bed is far too bloody high to be useful. as far as I am concerned.
