Hi All,

I hope this is ok in General Chat, Im James or JimmysBob if you fancy, im Leamington Spa and we have just purchased our first T25! Her name is Florence she is a converted panel van, 1.7KY with Danbury Style Side Elevating roof and a Holdworths interior, we love her and plan to do many a family trip in her, the intention is also to put a 1.9TDi (AFN) in place to promote easy cruising but for now the focus is on rust prevention / repair (shes fairly clean but... t25)

Really looking forward to chatting to you and have already used the WIKI to help me with the van, im quite hands on so looking forward to maintaining and looking after the old girl

Other cars ive owned include MK1 Golf, MK2 Golf and a Classic mini (that i still own), im currently learning to weld too which is almost certainly going to come in handy!:

Hi James, I'll look out for your bus and give you a wave. You may have seen me around town in my Mini 95 pickup.
