Ask Pine, he knows the Bloemfontein ACVW crowd. Gerhard may also know.

There used to be an old guy called something like "Peppi" in Bloemfontein. Wonder if once this was part of his stash? During the late 70's he operated out of an old building around the corner of the VW agents.

Wonder why this guy did not advertise in South Africa. Also if it was taken with a Iphone, 1 cool oomie on the farm. Or maybe just another exporter that took the pic’s. Anybody try to find out where the guy saw the advertisement for the cars.

Made contact with the guy today, He wants to sell the lot as a single sale.

approx. ZA R's 5 Mill.

Am trying to get him to offer the cars to SA guys as a 1st off

Maybe if we all club in we can keep them here in ZA

Will keep you informed as I have more talks with him.
