Don and Annette Potter, the owners of this business have owned and been driving these iconic pre 1968 Split
Windscreen Kombis for 51 years. They have owned 5 of them over the years as well as 3 later models as family cars. Nautilus the wedding car was renovated by Don over a 4 year period in the early 90s as a hobby project with the sole purpose of making it the best. He started with a very good clean and straight rolling shell and fitted it out like a new modern car without straying too far from the old style and feel. The chrome finish on the door handles and headlight surrounds is original and as good as when it was new. The body has no rust or dents.
Inspiration for the colour theme for was taken from the white water against the deep green of the ocean and then the nautical theme was carried through to the interior which has a cosy and comfortable feel and has an appearance much like that of a yacht. The vehicle also features bluetooth speakers so you can bring along your own music if you have a Bluetooth device.
Meet ‘Sunshine’ Nautilus’s new companion. She is a white and gold 2018 Volkswagen Multi Van.
Nautilus is a popular choice with brides and a real crowd pleaser with seating for up to 8 passengers which makes organising transport for a large wedding party or group affordable and fun because of face to face rear seating which makes for more of a party atmosphere rather than a bus ride.
Operating from their home in Kiama, Don and Annette started the business ‘Splitscreen Limousines’ in 2013 and have provided transport for over 250 weddings, winery tours, school formals and birthday celebrations.
Don say’s this is the best job in the world. All our customers are in a good mood and are happy to experience the fun, love and freedom of the 60s travelling and being noticed in Nautilus the Classic Air Cooled Kombi. “Driving this van is a bit like being a rock star. Everywhere you go it turns heads. People smile and want to check it out, take photos, ask questions and relate there Kombi/Beetle memories. One lady asked if she could stick her head in and have a sniff to bring back fond memories.”
