Aye..congrats on the little one. Wife looks happy; all is happy!

By the way the wheels need to be 16" 'ers. Was at GoWesty today in Los Osos, CA. They got tons of Vanagons, EuroVans...mostly EVC's.( http://www.gowesty.com/vehicle_sales.php). Parts and accessories are $$$$....I've been told that "What GoWesty wants, GoWesty gets". Looking for either 8-10' Fiamma awning. Anyone got a used one .



cheers

Thanks guys She is the sole reason I did the Eurovan project. Before her my wife and I traveled all over the country on our motorcycles. We don't want to stop traveling and want to include our daughter. So until she is old enough to ride on the back she gets the Eurovan.



.....don't worry.....our motorcycles are not leaving the mix! Wife loves her bikes too much

Congrats on your daughter. I have one too, and a eurovan. I'm pretty sure I responded to your Craigslist ad trying to get seat rails. I finally found some, so my project gets going again with new carpet next week when they arrive. Btw, Evs will easily tow a couple of bikes or a smaller dual sport on a hitch carrier. Also, when you camp with moto friends they will all want to hang out in your "living room."

Couple years ago, I was driving in France with my brother-in-law (he lives there)...new EV near us on the autoroute...he points and says, "See that VW? It's a new one."

"Yeah. You know we can't get them back home. You know mine's an '01."

"That one's a turbo diesel."

"Crap. Seriously?"

"6sp, too."

Yep, they are everywhere in other parts of the world. With much more desirable drive trains too! 6 speed, Turbo Diesel, 4x4, etc.

Not cheap(new) in the other countries though.

1 of 2. Wow. I was filled with pride every time a " Porsche guy" asked me if my light green metallic SC had original paint.

And now back to your regularly scheduled Eurovan thread.
