I have just started the process of replacing my long loved and recently handed on kombi ute, Bob. It is a hard act to follow as Bob had practical and cool by the bucket load but he was not practical if we want to become a one car household.
The two criteria for the new vehicle was to be able to carry stuff, and carry people at the same time, be it a car with trailer a van or a dual cab ute. I was impressed with the VW Amarok and the obvious differences between Bob, a 1973 kombi, and a modern VW go without saying.
We will start 2016 with the Amarok while Bob has joined a surfer in Adelaide.
