Bit of an adventure really, the kieft en klok place is like a candy shop. They are really nice volks. But went over with a friend to check the van out in Nov 04, paid in full for the bus and arranged to pick up in January 2005. My partner and I had a few days holiday in Amsterdam, that was very cold but a great laugh. Made our way from dam to the hook of holland where we arranged to meet the van. Drove her on the cat and landed in Harwich about 19.45, freezing cold, snowing not a nice night for a long drive to south wales...bbbbbrrrrrrrr. Phoned a mate to say we're back in the UK but heaters were crap, he laughed. Took our time coming home but only stopped twice, both of us were wrapped in everything out of our suitcases, i'd never been so cold. but we arrived home at 02.45 in the morning only got lost once. The next day popped in to show the old man, mentioned about the heaters and his mate was out in the van fiddling and shouted accross the heaters we're pretty good. I didn't tell my missus for ages she'd had enough of VW's to last a lifetime already....But what a great time it was definately do it again just for that experience. MOT was excellent all it required was a new drag link for the steering as it was sloppy as hell. The registration was a nightmare but i've been told the process has improved greatly. Since being in this country, fitted alternator, electronic ignition, cut and welded front beam, and cleaned the interior. Fitted a new battery tray as the americans bodged it...Apart from that alot more to come when time allows me.
