I was only wondering the same thing after checking the thread the other day.

Peter,
It's one of my favorite builds, so I got curious and googled it. Here's some recent info: http://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/viewto ... &start=160

Thanks Mate, good to see he's still moving on with it, as so many "projects" just fall by the wayside.

Peter,
As my Dad once pointed out, projects are often easier to begin than to finish. Among my googling, I also found out that he runs a company providing parts for WV Westfalia vehicles. So perhaps business has been good and he's been busy.

I hope it hasn't just being pushed to the back of the workshop and forgotten like so many unfinished projects. :(

Is that the theme to The Twilight Zone I hear? Nope, just the sound of my mind (still) wondering what ever happened to this truck...

:?:

This is my all-time favorite Pinzgauer build. Too bad it's not moving forward.

This guy may know something.

Might be available cheap now, no telling. :|
My guess is it's been sitting behind the shop for years now. Been about 3 years since he's visited here.

Yeah, I know that much. I was the guy who found him on samba. Same guy. I was hoping for an update. Maybe I've been dreaming that you're right, and the owner will pm me with an offer to sell (???). It's too cool of a project to moulder.

Couldn’t hurt to call and ask if he wants to sell it.
They may like some cash vs having sit around for another 3+ years!
