Keeping up that UK - US 'special' relationship

Post by dogsbody on Wed Dec 14, 2016 6:26 am

Hi folks!
This is dogsbody, signing in from across the pond in a cold & damp North Wales.
Luckily I stumbled across your site while searching for an A-series to import.
I've done a fair bit of research, but I'm very happy to know there's a forum! And, no doubt, a fountain of knowledge... Very Happy

I'll be asking many questions... and once I take the plunge and buy one, I promise I'll keep you updated.

Welcome! There are a lot of freindly, helpful people here. I'm sure that one of the "A" van gurus will chime in.

Welcome to the best vintage vans site. You've got company in the UK as we have a few members across the pond. I'm sure they can probably advise you on some of the intricacies of shipping, parts, etc. We love seeing pics so once you've picked one, please let us see what you have. Help is yours for the asking!!!

Hey, welcome from "around the corner", even though "you" obviously just "left" europe lol! (no offence, just kidding Wink ).

I already enjoyed many helpful tips, hints and the wealth of information in this forum (although I do only own a vanUP, as they call the pickup around here).

Good luck with your search. We have a couple of A-vans in Germany - I do know about almost 10. Cool

Danke 69! Hey we're almost neighbours ;-)

I think we were as shocked about having to leave the Euro as the US is about Trump! I'll never understand humans, they do the dumbest things.
Thankfully we have cool toys to distract us from the end of the world!

That is SOO true. And I'm so happy about that. Smile

I guess we'd better leave politics off this forum - just gets people upset. Sorry for starting that topic.
