Déjà vu?

Post by Pine » Wed Sep 13, 2017 9:58 am

The first photo was taken 20 years ago in Bloemfontein the day I bought my first buggy (HW1). I towed it back home with my green 412LE Variant. Whilst riding with HW2 (since renamed 'Naomi') in the town of George this weekend, I saw a (different) green 412 Variant parked next to the road. I simply couldn't resist posing for another pic :lol:

RIP HW1 1971 - 2007 :cry:

That 412 still looks good. So Pine, when are you getting a type 4 again?
Do'nt assume anything- (While doing fault-finding).

That is the only running Type 4 I'm aware of in George. Another one in Oudthshoorn but none in Knysna or Mossel Bay.

Hopefully one day I'll get a 412 Variant again...

Well spotted! :lol:

I took the Sprintstars off earlier this year to have them refurbished, but have since found out that they can only do it for me in Cape Town, so I haven't sent them yet.

They got some damage over the past couple of years with all our off-road ventures, and will in future only be used on 'good' roads.
