Hmm...wonder if it's worth putting my VW T25 shaped block of rust on the application list...

Poor thing has been on hold since 2011 when I got it...had stood under a tree for eight years prior to that.

It's an early one and as such I think is worth saving. ...despite virtually every body panel (but not the chassis!) Being utterly rotten...

T25 are definitely worth saving although I am biased :) Very under rated but hopefully an appreciating classic. Great fun, just finished major engine surgery, wish there had been an air cooled example for sale at the time we got ours, 18.75 litres of coolant and constant temperature gauge watching, although fingers crossed that's a thing of the past on ours. Being a 1983 It's a very early water boxer. I do enjoy driving the Xantia afterwards

now the quandary is which one Violet the dersh ( purple and lilac 2CV ) or my DS thats been of the road ( dry stored 99% of that time ) for over 30 years and has a seized engine,

the only down side is i have seen these car resto shows before, do you think they would know what to do with a DS, or even a dersh come to that??????

Ours is a 1980 van on a V plate with the much maligned (and as a result rarely seen now!) 1.6 CT engine.

Yes it's beyond gutless (especially when running on 3 1/2 cylinders...) but it sounds good and being the undesirable version to me just makes it all the more worth saving.

Started life as a painter's van I reckon before having a very decent home made camper conversion done in the mid 80s.

Has to be worth an email...even if I would then need to figure out where to put it down here!...and how to get it here at anything like a sensible price.
