    Default I have found my perfect car for trialling and showing ...Whoo hoo

    I love my Jeep when we are towing our trailers. But with the cost of fuel we started looking for a smaller car to travel with. Keeping the Jeep for the trailers

    I think I have found the perfect one.....Annabelle. Tessa and I always camp.

    But now we are thinking this might do us.

    You can take everything out of the back, Bed, extra seating and have a pallet size space for the dogs, if we take all four

    So maybe Monday..............Depending on mechanical check-up PS the one I am looking at is 2nd hand and does not have the stripes......

    It is in awesome meticulous condition. Have tried all four dogs in it and can easily carry two with the bed insitu..Annabelle and Tessa Jump up. Lukey and Katy find it easy to step-up when the back is clear.

    I like that. Does it come with the drawers ?? Very well thought out vehicle with lotsa options.

    My mate is a Volkswagon mechanic at the local dealer here in Bundy. Theres a good chance i might be catching up with him tomorrow, if so i'll ask about them and let ya know what he has to say. Volksy's usually make a reliable vehicle. We had a pop top Kombi when i was a kid and traveled alot of the east coast of NSW and QLD in it.

    Thank you...We took it for a drive and we were very pleased..even though we drove badly, because we have both had automatics for the past four years. the Caddy coped with us. Even taking off in 3rd gear LOL......

    Wipers going instead of blinkers Yadi yadi yadi...Pa and Ma Kettle were out on the road LOL.......

    We managed quite well after five minutes..the canvas thing was so easy to put up and the seats come out as does the bed and the drawers..quick and easy.....

    All the equipment is there, it used to belong to a real fussy guy, very particular

    LOL ... taking off in 3rd gear ... I haven't driven a manual car for years, haha ... funny when you come to the stop sign and brake and the car is shuddering to a grinding halt, then you remember to put your foot on the clutch ...

    The cars owned by the fussy guys are the best ones to buy ... hope you get a great deal.

    When you take out the back seats and the bed/stuff, it has four great anchoring points for the dogs. Tie down rings for load straps. And thsoe bags carry all my junk and their are under floor lockers and the spare is under the van, so no unpacking if you have a flat.

    I just love it..........A few of my showy friends have Caddy's and they love theirs. So I hope the NRMA OK's it. It will have a four year mechanical warranty included with the price ( I am kinda exited, sorry).

    It looks great. I don't think I'd want to cross an Oz desert (not enough clearance underneath) with it but for anywhere with graded roads it would be fantastic. It does seem like the thing to win hearts like the original combi vans.

    I think Volkswagon would love a photo with all the newfies packed in.

    the Jeep is staying ..it is a great four wheel drive........This will be for all the hundreds of other doggie trips, about four times a week just to different training sessions and all the trials and shows
