Title: "Spotted"
Post by: kimbosound on September 15, 2009, 12:16:11 PM
In my job i am lucky enough to travel many miles out in the South West and Great Southern area of WA.....Now that i am a bonafied Beddy owner my Beddy 6th sence has kicked in and i seem to be stumbling across old beddies parked up in some funny places. As i am looking for bits and peices all the time....i happened upon these two beddies yesterday.....the tiny blue spec in the first 2 photos is a LWB windowless looking like it may be being dismantled as the front grill is missing....it was parked a fair way off the road and i was unable to access the property as the gate was locked.....the 2nd one is an ugly old SWB high roof model but the doors, bonnet, grill, windscreen all looked good....also has the diff front end attached.....this i know has been parked up for 8 years as i pass it regually, i left a note in the padlock with an offer to buy [parts only] so fingers crossed....photos a bit shabby but only had the mobile ph camera

hey if you wanted to be "safe" you wouldnt be driving it in the first place.

unless your just warning everyone else on the road that your driving a 70"s british van and that your a hazard! drum brakes!

I saw a very nice beddy going the other way today, just had time to read the word 'builder', but not who.
Some where near box hill.
I might have been dreaming but it looked like a LWB with a low roof, but might have just looked longer windowless

Ha Ha, that was me Warren!!
I was sooo excited to see you that day, because up until then I had only seen you in traffic from behind. I have just moved into the area, so I'm sure there will be more spottings and airhorn blasts!  ;D

Spotted this yellow SWB parked at Safeway, Canterbury rd. near Kenworth on the weekend. It has a Pennywise sticker on the rear window. Waited a little while for the owner to come out, but didn't catch 'em.

Easter Weekend Spotting

On Thursday night in the city I saw a LWB "Deja Voodo"  ;D got pics of that one below.

Sunday driving back from the Bush, saw Morgan in his blue beast and Ben (Neville Bartoss) in his red and black beddy both  on the Calder within about 10 mins of each other.

Then, today I saw a silver SWB on Canterbury rd. near Bedford Park. Had a quick chat at the lights with the bloke, he had owned it for 40 years..looked great black gt stripes down the bonnet, roof and back..shiny sorta flares (metal, but not full curved out flares) ..

so that makes 4 bedford sightings in one long weekend! that's a record for me  ;D ;D
