Hi,

Im not an alchoholic but have a problem buying any other vehicle than a VW.

I blame my first car a sporty puggy 205 tdi whos engine blew up twice, once fried, once boiled. Only because i was young and nieve enough to drive like a deranged moron then try and replace the engine myself...

Since then I have had a mk2 golf, audi a2, 54 VW Beetle convertible (the ex-wifes), 06 T5 and learned to drive in my parents passat estate (bad move for 15 . turn), another passat i drove into a stone cliff, they had a polo, golf plus and a lovely T2 orange bay when we where kids which they sold for 100 squid, doh. Guess what cars my bro and sis drive...... VW!

I frickin love beetles since seeing herbie, but not owned one yet :( (but my brother did before i was old enough to drive grrrr). I have a very useful 06 T5 window van which I want to convert before I die and have a mission to find a T2 bay for my soon to be 77 yr old mother who has a dream...

Can anyone here help???

:) 
Ben

P.S. If anyone can help I have skills in traditional boatbuilding, serious, happy to trade!!

Welcome to the forum! The guy in Evans cycles would be Nick who is no longer in the club and no longer has awesome dreads.
If you keep an eye on the for sale section and also join our Facebook page if you can, you may have luck getting a van. I know where there is one that's going to be for sale but it does need welding.
See you at club night!

Hi guys! Recently threw myself in at the deep end and bought a some-what rusty, beaten, worn down, stripped out but incredibly AWESOME 1990 1.6 Diesel T25! Whilst bragging on Reddit of my new love, I was directed here by another enthusiast!

I'm hoping this is a place to share my beloved Angus, oggle at some other VW's and maybe pick up some useful hints and tips on caring for him!

People call me Loch and my van is Angus

Hello loch and Angus! May I ask where on Reddit you heard about us? I didn't realise anyone else on here except Ben and I were on Reddit!

I made a post to r/vandwellers :) The person who recommended me said they drive an orange Baja Bug if it helps? Unfortunately I won't be able to come to the meet tonight to properly introduce myself but I will do my utmost to ensure I can make it next month.
