A place for new members to introduce themselves and say hello.

We have just joined the club and are introducing ourselves.
We are Danny and Mandy and we have just bought a 1966 A35 Van with a countryman conversion. You may know it as the 'Ratlook' vehicle from the National event. It is now in the paint shop having a more conventional
finish applied.
We live near Tewkesbury and we have already met up with the Gloucestershire group at a very wet evening event at Twyning Cricket Club.
We spent today at the Classic van and Pick-up show at Gaydon with my other classic vehicle, a 1989 VW T25 Single Cab pick-up. There were plenty of Morris Minor Commercials at the event but sadly no A30/A35 vans.
All the best

Hi All,

Thanks for the responses. The Van is still in the paint shop but today's news is that we have finally agreed on a colour scheme. Pictures to follow in a couple of weeks.
