"New" Van [or next project!!]

Post by starider »

Hi, I may have, in the past, mentioned that when in the motor trade I worked for a dealer for DAF cars[the Variomatic automatic transmission].Although there are quite a number of cars around the UK, vans and pick-ups are rare,there are only 3 of each model in the UK.
I have always wanted a van[I have a pick-up,used by no.2 son].Now I have one[since January 1st] which is now in restoration.
If anyone wants to have a look go to-- dafcars.proboards.com and find "DAF 33 Van Project". You'll recognise the Avatar.................starider ;)

:D Oooh not sure I have even seen a DAF 33 van before! I believe my Aunt used to have one of the cars, many years ago, as it was easy to drive!

Have fun with your project!

Hi Starider

Love the new van project. Don't see many of these around if ever, but I do remember the DAF33 Variomatic from the 1970's, and really liked them. They were quite an innovation. (PS hope you don't mind me posting a photo of it..nice one!)
