new post about the dutch.
i made a deal with someone, who was selling it for the price of one
without a licence.
12.000 guilders (about 3.500 pounds)
it was fully original, when he brought it over it was:
ice cream truck white, crosses where gone, interior was stripped out,
the front was sandblasted, yes even the glass.
there was a range rover chassis in parts, and a lot of garbage.
it drove 1 liter to 1 km, firing on just 4 cylinders.
it had something, it made me official nuts.
when i had new sparkplugs, and new contactpoints, i even won at a
trafficlight dragrace from a VW GTI.
everything already gone from the back, we build a camper of it,
i did got the chance to get an interior, after looking for it for four
everybody is stripping it out, so for me it's nice to restore it.
as for the 6.2 gmc, drive it lightfooted, and pull away in 2nd gear.
or, put a autobox behind it, with a torq converter.
(if i can get a 6.2 engine and american gearbox, can i try to make it
dutch dvla won't take it as a conversion, but if i had it exported to
the uk, and get it licensed there, import it to holland, the dutch dvla
wil take it as it is.)
the camo paint, is a mix from dutch camo paint, it was bad to paint
and got a headache for 2 day's ( they smelled the paint 6 streets from
i am a nutter, and so is my dad.
i was looking for a girl in the uk, (not just to help me with my gaelic
but i have found someone over here (wants to go off-roading with the
hope she's not going to be a SWMBO, fear already....
