Hello

We have had a 79 T2 for over 15 yrs but my lack of time and maintance ment she broke down to often when in France on Hols so we sold the car and got the T5


Its not been a smooth as expected as only 80 miles into the journey home she lost all electrics. I pulled onto the hard shoulder and left her running checked fuses all were good at this point the highway men arrived and escorted us 4 miles up the M5 in heavy rain and darkness to a services, where we waited the big yellow taxi.
It turned out to be a knackered alternator.

so day 2 of ownership I learnt myself how to change one .

All was good and the next jod fit a tow bar this went well as I'd done one on the previous car.


WE then after 3weeks of ownership spent 3 weeks in france doing just over 1800 miles. she behaved and was good to drive her.

I know need to find different wheels as I had to replace a tyre the other day which cost £196 so as much as they may look good they gotta go.
