Address 510 Three Ways, Pringle bay.

Regarding his recently imported lhd kombis, could it be that status is: "registered and paid, but no licence disc issued until roadworthied". Only once converted to rhd could roadworthy certificate be issued. Buyer might only realise this after taking delivery...

Reply on one of his busses

I specifically asked about the paperwork

Hi Hein,

The kombi was restored 3 years ago and is running well. We've jut done a 200km road trip two weeks back down to Cape Agulhas.

Papers are in order with matching engine and chassis numbers on the certificate of registration and license is paid up to end September next year.

Please give me a call if you interested or would like more details.

Thank you.

They have put this blue one up under "Annika Ha's" on Facebook which looks like another false profile with a distant photo of her, the Kombi's got the same back ground and Kombi as Tyl parked out the front in the line up of his cars. She's a German girl living in SA.. Annika Ha - Anke Hamers?

Well, considering thats his email response with his cel number, the people who want to proceed and lay charges should now have plenty information to do this. So whats the status then? Fig, any idea?

Claims it's a 1970 but looks like a 1971.

His address is being checked out. We worked out the address of the (former?) guest house pictured in the background of one of his ads. It's as dawie posted above. Tyl may or may not stay or have stayed there. It appears his girlfriend works or worked there. There is also another address that will be checked out.

It is quite clear he is holed up in the vicinity of Pringle Bay. With fewer than 1,500 residents, it's not a place where anyone can hide. The fact that he displays multiple vintage VW buses there means everyone there must at least know of him.

Any locals want to plan a day trip to Pringle Bay in their bus and see what they can turn up just by driving a bus there, and maybe gently questioning some locals?

And another one. His ads are not so abrasive and his prices have become more reasonable:

He uses these good kombi buses to get people to call and then tells them the bus has been sold so he can sell you another one which he can restore.. another way to scam (we called up and Anke said that the yellow one sold and they have another bus to restore for us but I know for a fact that this bus hasn't sold as she says)

I'm sure that these last 2 early bays (red and yellow) were at the Killarney Car Show last year. But they were'nt registered to attend by this Tyl character

Could they just be borrowing their pictures? Different phone number.

Any locals want to plan a day trip to Pringle Bay in their bus and see what they can turn up just by driving a bus there, and maybe gently questioning some locals?
So we spent a day in Pringle Bay during our December road trip to the Cape. I checked out the guest house (clearly still working as a guest house) and a couple of other GPS points I had been given, but which turned out to be empty plots. Then I engaged an old lady in conversation about a rusty old westy parked in the street opposite the shops. She said if I'm interested in campers then I must visit the "camper graveyard" and directed me straight to Tyl's house. He and his girlfriend were even sitting inside as we passed slowly by. I had figured I wouldn't need to speak to more than 3 locals to track him down.

If anyone needs to serve legal papers on him, PM me and I'll share his address and pics of his house.
