We bought our Cosmo Mica VYII SS “Sandman by HBD” brand new in 2004. One of only 224 built, we’ve owned it now for 13 years and kept it through two kids; we’ve never considered selling it.
I bonded with the Sandman forever on a trip to the NT.
The unrestricted roads were a dream; our low-flying trip to the West MacDonnell Ranges being the highlight; the journey captured for posterity a decade later in a 2016 issue of Street Machine magazine.
It’s still my daily driver; I’ll keep it until I can’t.
