Re: should we ask committee to rethink SSVC camping at Vanfest?

Well having found this topic I am going to add my 5 pennith!! I have spoke to many on this subject and could I propose we as a club do our own thing for the Van Fest weekend, there must be many camp sites around the country who would give up a field to the SSVC, not wanting to sound like a snob, but...

Re: MAJOR PROBLEMS WITH A RESTORATION

As I have stated on this forum I am hoping to have my own VW service center in Wiltshire to hopefully help with this kind of thing. I have been appalled at the level of so called " VW Restorers " in the past, this story is not new and it wont be the last. If you do manage to get your van back, and I...

:( To say it's sad is an understatement, Tony was a very good friend, someone like him you wont meet every day. Coming from the same county as Tony and so close makes it that much harder for it to sink in. A man that allways had time for you, allways a passing smile. I have spoke to Rose today and s...
