Post by Rock Bus » Sat Nov 14, 2009 9:23 pm

No it wasn't, sorry :oops: It's timetravellersuk.co.uk It's been a couple of years since getting mine but I saw them at a couple of shows this summer so they're still about.
Google timetravellers vw finds them aswell :wink:

How about going even more different and having an organic one like Gary's Aka max last.

Hand made in Spalding, it has been to Spa and back without any damage!!
