Hi all ,first post although I have been watching in the shadows for last four years, don't think either of these are on the list.
1990 LHD syncro doka 16" just about to return the road after a two year absence, probably know by a few long term members on here (ex vattenfall works in blue that suffered smoke damage from a sandwich warmer !!!) but been in my possession since 2013 and just finishing restoration.
Plus the main reason for the post I bought a lhd 14" syncro doka in white about 18 months ago as a basket case for a parts doner having been stood since 07 there isn't much left but realized today its very early (built Feb 85 according to an online resource) only one uk owner so it may be pretty much unknown among the guru's on here :) not sure how much longer it will survive :(
so that's 184 and 185?

Seems the just place for my first contribution!
Driving a 92 Syncro Doka 2.1 wbx (LHD 14" but rolling on 15's). Swedish railway origins so has some funky mods from it's workhorse days, the best being it's pop up tea table.
Interested when production ended of these (month).

I bought a Syncro from Scotland on Saturday which I don't think is on the list. Its a right hand drive tintop with an AAZ engine. Although it's on the road it requires a fair bit of work to get it up to a decent standard. The previous owner had it for three years and although spent many thousands on some nice bits only drove it a few hundred miles. I'm looking forward to getting it on the ramp to thoroughly go over it and get my head round the four wheel drive system.

Number 188
1987 T25 AAZ RHD Syncro
1989 T25 MTDI RHD Syncro

Hi Everyone, just adding our van to the list (so number 190), it's a 1988 LHD Multivan, Westfalia pop top. 1.6 td (jx), 14", rear locker. We've had him for 7 years (imported and registered with DVLA as campervan), but sadly looking to let him go as we are not using enough and don’t have the space. I'm looking to advertise it in the next couple of weeks, but thought I'd give you guys a heads up in case anyone on the forum was looking around, I’d rather it go to someone who has a genuine interest.

It’s in good mechanical condition, some corrosion showing in usual spots. We’ve just had a brand new MOT done to end of May 2019, my approach has always been to have the van in a useable condition and deal with anything that crops ups. We’ve had a re-conditioned diesel pump, new injectors & heat plugs, and the gearbox was rebuilt by Aidan in 2012. (I’ve never done any off roading with it, other than muddy campsites! )

We are in South Wales (Cardiff). message me if you are interested.

Cheers, Carl

A friend of mine used to own a Syncro but sold it probably around 2004 ish and I was wondering the other day if it is now owned by a club 80-90 member. As far as I can remember it was a completely standard RHD Caravelle diesel (presumably JX) in white and possibly E or F reg. He sold it before I was 'initiated' into T25's but with hindsight, I really wish I'd bought it! He sold it to work colleague of his in Keswick, Cumbria but given the time that has passed he could well have sold it on again.

Does this ring any bells with anyone?
