Parked on a parking meter in the centre of town, just behind where I work, I saw an iddy-biddy VW Kombi....

Thinking this was very odd, I inspected further......

This was quite bizarre - a shoddy and only partial conversion of a micro-van into a Kombi.

So I went home and asked my friend Google about it. Turns out it is a Subaru Sambar (not a model we normally see in the UK) with a facelift. But the really weird thing that this is not a one-off bit of fun... they are produced commercially and at least one company imports them into the UK!!!!

Take your pick! [Razz] [Razz]

Oooh! Look!
Someone washed a Kombi in hot water!
Very cute, and being a Subaru, it's probably quite reliable.

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.
