Beautiful Australian Late Bay

6 01 2013

Another late bay spotted a year ago in Geelong, Australia. Looks like it just got a brand new paint job. Could be reef blue (L57H). Comes with one of the heavier versions of the various roo bars, with attachment points for the spare wheel in its center. The pop-up roof is none of the European standards (Westfalia, Devon, Dormobile) but a conversion one sees often over there.  Electricity inlet in the right rear corner at head height, again something common only down there. Stands on non-Volkswagen steel wheels. Tyres also look slightly larger than the standard bus tyres. Sport exhaust with two outlets, so someone has worked on the details already. Comes with Victoria Club permit on the registration. Apparently this means the car is at least 25 years old (classic or historic), the owner is member of a club, and the car is driven for only 90 days per year, with an obligatory logbook over those days. I hope in exchange one can drive the car without further taxes. Still quite some effort. Sliding window in the rear left section – need something like that for our bus for next summer. What a nice bus!
