T25 spotting

Postby ambibus » 19 Aug 2012, 15:59

When I had my reliable economical, fast, power steering as standard T4....., I used to like going on the T4 forum after a day out to see if we had been listed on the T4 spotting page. Was wondering if it was possible for Club 80 90 to have a similiar page?

Been to Castleton in Derbyshire to day and passed and been waved at by 3 other T25s, for all I know they could be club members but now will never know, if you know what I mean.

Usually went something like

Spotted today 19th August 14.30pm A57 Snake Pass
Blue Devon conversion square headlights G reg
Thanks for the Flash/Wave :)

Then if you recognise your where abouts and description you can reply

That was me Ambibus!

also comes in handy if your vans just been nicked, but not if you were taking your mistress for sunday lunch, which I was'nt by the way :rofl

Hi Jane

See what I mean? you'll never know if they were club members or not, I've also noticed when I'm driving my Ranger pick up or my wifes car I see a few
T25s, but when you go out in the van you might not see one to wave to all day, strange
I may start posting my spottings to see if it catches on

Kind regards

paul

I tried a few times in the early days of T25 ownership, but never got any "yes, that was me" replies :(
I waved at a T25 while driving my Citroen a few weeks ago. I got a very puzzled look......but I did get a wave back :D
I need to perfect me "Vdub" wave, although I'll probably look like an old biddy trying to be all hip and get it wrong and end up giving people the bird or summat :rofl

I've tried the V Dub wave as well, I just end up looking like my hands been through a mincer and I've lost 2 fingers, my 11 year old daughter can do a perfect VW emblem by showing the palm of her hand with thumb and little finger extended ,and index finger and ring finger touching finger nail of middle finger..bet your all trying it now ! :rofl

Go on, admit it. Sometimes as you're driving along you practice doing that sign/wave but low down towards the passenger side just to see if you can manage it quickly.

OK, I will admit I have but it still hasn't been tried for real yet.

The type 4 spotting site must have had lot of posts,
8) I saw a plumbers van
8) I saw an electrician
8) I saw a washing machine repair man
8) I saw a woops no its a TRIFLE :run

Waving to type 4 & 5 's unless def an easy recognisable camping conversion is someting like an old Hale & Pace sketch from years ago when 2 chaps walking down a corridor don't if to acknoledge or not oif anyone can remember it :rollin
