Big HP bump, interior lifted from Mercedes S-class,

I'm sure it's a very good/competant vehicle but that thing is absolutely hideous.

Sure, you couldn't see how hideous it was if you were driving

But he made it.
If by "third world" you're referring to post-WWII German farmers trying to recover from the collapsed German economy then you're bang on.

No, just one of the ones I saw on the local CL.

But I think I'm going the Other Way, meaning a Cheap Van, with the rest of the Play Fund going towards the two-wheel side of the fence.

Apparently in Europe (and Mexico) they have opening "slider in glass" windows available. that for whatever reason are not available here



Here we have the CRL windows with the "awning" glass in the bottom.. but you can't get them for the right rear of the van because the sliding door could snap the awnings off if they were open when you opened the door.



I'm trying to find a dealer in the UK that can sell me a couple of the sliders
