Re: [Syncro_T3_Australia] Steyr Puch Gathering Proposal [5 Attachments]

Hi Roger,
Interesting, unfortunately I can't see or access the 300GD or Popemobile as it was called later.
I had an early one although it didn't carry any SDP signage or transfers etc.
in 1984 our son Chis (14 at the time) and I drove to the Centre, the Gunbarrel Hwy, Canning Stock Route, and back via the Channel Country, Bourke, Mudgee and back to Port Mac.
Chris became a really good driver. He did approx 1500 ks.
We sold the car to help buy the farm... A few years later a fellow from the village (Comboyne) came to visit in his new acquisition , and yes it was our ex GD which he bought in Bourke from a lady Doctor !!
At 500.000 ks he did the head and recently sold the car with almost one mio ks on it. All running gear was still original.
Those were the times.....

Do I remember correctly that the Forest Commission brought 1 in for evaluation in the 60's or 70's and despite being most impressed with its capabilities never ordered any. I used to lust after them but decided the T3 was a less tedious proposition to cross the Nullabor.

I expect Hart to respond with VIN number, history, expedition fitout etc from his prolific memory and life experiences.

There must be a fewHaflingers still around the place and no such gathering would be completewithout them. I would certainly like to see some early G Wagensthere. It is still in production, which says a considerable amount forits market acceptance from the outset. With enough advancenotice, you might even get some support from SDP. It is unlikely that VAGwould be interested but you never know! It could be worth a try,particularly if there is local motoring press support. Please keep me posted.

Thanks Hart - always something interesting from your vast very humanity orientated storage system more generally called a brain. I knew you wouldn't let me down.

PS reattaching 1 of my original photos but seem to have lost some including my DOTVW ones in the compression process. I blame my computer but fear it is the owner.
