Happy New Year!

2 01 2014

Let the year begin with this beautiful double cabin pick up truck: Spotted last week by kombi correspondent Matti in Los Realejos on the Spanish island of Tenerife which is part of the Canary Islands. A Late Bay model, probably from 1973 (country plate on the rear bumper). It belongs to workers of a local church – with their own “church parking” symbol painted on the street, and a crucifix dangling from the rear view mirror – nice touch. Beautiful condition, with what looks like a new paint job in neptune blue, and complete down to every detail: shiny hub caps with additional chrome rim rings, new rubber bands on both bumpers, mud flaps in the back. Perhaps recently restored? Wishing you all a Happy New Year and all the best for 2014!

Yet another beautiful bus you’ve posted. Happy New Year!

Good afternoon, first of all congratulations for your blog, I’m the owner of the double cab, I am not church worker and the van does not belong to the church that day was doing a charity work for the Town Hall of Puerto de la Cruz, in solidarity PICKUP toys to celebrate the three wise kings day. The crew cab was manufactured in 1973 and was restored in 2010 but was in very good condition without any rust, just a few scratches on their bodywork, nice to see it on your blog and congratulations again.
