Same here, I still have parts of the original van too :pimp

I would argue with me and Jackie being 'original members' though Shep ... 14 years later JaneH1 still ribs me about being a 4 digit member :rofl Thinking of the first meet we went to which was Apps Court 1 in July 2004 those in attendance were Terryvanman and Nada, Steve Mocki, Matt, Jen, Billypisspants and Sally, Martin and Deanne, Marcus and Tracy Mercdoctor, Tickledonion and Madam Choley, Ray and Sheila, Leigh in Stoke :shock: plus others my liver has managed to make me forget.

The only thing I will add is that for the true feel of 80-90 you need to come to a Club camp ... if you come along and are willing to talk and listen you'll learn far more and get vastly more out of the Club than either the forum (which is still great) or it's Facebook page (which I personally don't frequent, although Jackie does and even she laughs at some of the advice given there). You will NOT be shunned, you will realise that the majority of us are just old friends with a mutual appetite for financial (and renal) destruction ... there has never been a closing date to the 'Old Friends' list either, we still like to meet nice, new people every year.

Club 80-90 is a great forum.

I date back to 2000 and even remember Mocki arriving. Yes, really! (My old number was sub 2-300 and got mixed up.)

It's always been a welcoming and helpful place although my location (Belfast) has stopped me participating fully. I have met some memebers who have visited Ireland on holiday though.

I drop in every so often but only post occasionally.

Long live Club 80-90. :)

i just popped in after searching the interweb to find out about a engine swap when my second van needed a new engine..... wet behind the ears..... i had been running a t25 for about 6 years before i even heard of 80-90,the first one was a devon pop top CU that pissed more petrol on the top of the engine than it used , i ignored it and drove literally thousands of miles like that ( petrol was only about 50ppl thenand £10 was good for 100 miles) then i changed to the first white hitop leisuredrive and cooked the engine limping home one sunday night after a headsutd snapped and disappeared all the coolant 2 miles from home in the dark on a wet windy night ...... the rest is , as they say , history

After going camping with a mate who had a T25, I was trying to enjoy folding tent on wheels. Taking two hours to set up, he watched me from the slider with a beer, shaking his head.
So I thought I'm having that and bought a van with my redundancy money.

I got told about Club80-90 and Brickyard from a pal.
Went on both, decided that 80-90 was more mature.

I must be getting old, been on the forum for longer than I care to think about!! Its been great, met loades of people over the years and now Synronauts as well. A T25 or if you prefer T3 I dont care which, is a way of life, we go away in one of the vans whenever we can. Daphne our 1982 Devon has been ours for over 22 years, and we had a T3 panel van prior to that for 9 years! I think Jayne and myself are certifiable and now with Nursie the Syncro to keep on the road as well......we are MAD. Love it all.

I only heard about club 80-90 when we went to view our first van (that I didn't buy, despite driving the family from Woking to York just to view it!)
Always learning something's ng new about T3's and made a lot of lifelong friends too.

This isn't directly connected to the history of club 80-90..

I was shifting through some old "Steam" photos the other day and came across a few from my son's 7th birthday party that we had while on a weekend away in our 1982 2.0L Aircooled. That was in 1988!! Two more t25s were owned in the following years but this one was my favourite.

All three of my kids are in the pics and the youngest is 32. My son is 37 now.

I must get a scanner and put them up here. The van is beautiful. :)
