It was originally purchased by international distillers and vintners, so has never been used to do much work!

Aah, you need to host them on a site like photobucket, then copy the img and post it up like that, instructions are in the WIki if you get stuck.
Sure there's quite a few people would like to see it.

I'm sure there are a lot of more knowledgeable people on here than me regarding the tristar history...
I think there were only 21 UK right hand drive tristar's, so its a bit rare!
This one was purchased by J&b Whisky and used as a promotion vehicle, it was then given to a guy who did balloon rides... (Again a good advertising tool)
I have owned it for approximately 3 years... to my knowledge it has never been to any VW shows, so has been a bit off the radar...

That is awesome! Are those arches a Tristar thing or 16" ? It looks exceptionally tidy, has it ever been used?!

Can you upload the links to the pictures, would love to see more detail.

Blimey. It's resurfaced!
Got a shed load of pics of it somewhere. IIRC classic car garage place (Oxford?) way was selling it. That's maybe two or three years back?
Was a Hot Air Balloon chase vehicle at one point IIRC. :ok

Not totally off the radar then... I bought it off the guy who did the balloon rides...

Yes it is in really good condition, not done a great deal of work other than cart balloons around!

I will try and take some more pictures and upload over the weekend.

Would be interested to hear if anyone else has come across it, I don't know too much about its history, and any info would be appreciated.

It is very nice and very likely a much much better investment than that banking business!
