...whose adoption was confirmed last weekend! Colin is an A Reg T25 (the larger, water cooled petrol engine, he will do 70mph (fully loaded) by all accounts), who was originally a standard Transporter van, but has been lovingly converted into a fully functional (and much happier) camper van bus by Flyingpops' brother... ...who has fitted cupboard space, a folding bed, a fridge, a cooker, curtains and a leasure battery on the inside... ...and also applied some subtle lithographics to the outside, as well as getting the rust sorted (although these T25s don't suffer from rust as much as the slightly older ones as they had extra treatment to the underside when they were manufactured (which turned out to be extremely successful, well done Volkswagen!)...
I'd been saving this bit of news, as today (it's even wonderfully sunny), we were supposed to go and collect him, but as a result of my knee (managed 5 hours sleep last night, so a lot better, but still...), I ain't going nowhere... :(
But, exciting camper-van adventures await! Watch this space!
Update - Forgot to mention he also put in a wood panelled floor! (the kind that people who don't feel the cold used to install instead of carpet in trendy flats five (or so) years ago)...and it looks amazing! :0
Update update - If you were worrying about me getting cold tootsies, it's okay, we can put a rug down... ;)
