Ah, someone at last knows who I'm talking about :lol: :mrgreen:

Registrations in those days ran from Jan-Dec of that year, so that could have been 1966, the year he left them :idea:
1997 Mk5 SWB 115 Minibus 70ps Di (Gone, but not forgotten!)
2004 Mk6 SWB T280 Medium Roof 85PS 2.0 TDDi - Vantunered (Also gone)
2008 Mk7 SWB T280 Medium Roof 85PS 2.2 TDCi - Also Vantunered
