Hi Bob, I past you a few months ago on my way back from Kalgoolie, I was not in an OKA and was on a deadline so couldn't pull you over.
Then I missed you when it was parked in front of the music shell in Bunbury on New Years eve, I pulled up for a gander and so did Lachlan.

Hope you get an early sale
Cheers

Hi Ewart
How about that. We did a run from Alice springs to Perth in August. Left the oka at Kalumuna, and flew home to Sydney. Just before the New Year we returned.
We actually saw you looking at the Oka in Bunbury. We were over the way a bit. Sorry we missed the chance to chat.
Nice time in the south, then drove home.

# Darren.
Sorry mate. 16 good years and lots of trips, but time to sell. The clipper we hope will be on the road about July.
Also sold the factory, and moving to the Southern a Highlands.
Cheers
Bob

Gee Bob, moving is a big task. If you need somewhere to store the Haffie, just call mate, I shall make room next to the V8 Rav. :))

OKA 290 is still for sale.
Also have listed on eBay. Interestingly someone bought it the other day without contacting me or inspecting. It seems someone hit the "buy it now" button by mistake. Oh well!!

Any interest call me. 0407 676 759
