just thought id introduce myself

Post by mr sinbin on 27/1/2010, 1:19 am

hey there

just new to the forum so i thought i would introduce!! Very Happy

names matt, im 19 and live on the mid north coast bout halfway between port macpuarie and coffs harbour, just outside the small country town of macksville.

ive got a wb holden panelvan which i bought nearly 2yrs ago, 3weeks b4 i got my license. its all stock still except for a woodgrain steering wheel and kidney rims and some interior mods like carpet in the bak and a custom mattress cut out around the wheel arches. its just running a 202 and a 3speed trimatic on the tree, and just ticked over 575000kms Very Happy

ive always been into vans, ever since my old man put the poster of the cover of the very first edition of street machine up on my wall!! Very Happy

ive been looking 4 a van forum for a while now and was stoked when i saw links to this on old holden!

so anyways hope to learn alot for u guys, make some new mates and extend my knowledge on and the greatest cars ever invented Very Happy

cheers

Hi Matt, welcome to the forum, as you can c i hav a wb as well, '83, 202 stock (on gas) with 3pd manual on the tree!!! aren't they fun!!
anyhow, there's lots to see and do on here, and everyone's only too happy to provide advice and help, so just ask away with any questions. check out www.vanning.org.au for more info on our van scene, you can also view past events photos etc etc like the nationals.... being held in Philip Island this year - yes, we're going overseas...LOL hope you enjoy the forum and you get to meet up with fellow vanners cheers

Welcome to the forum Matt.
There is another vanner who visits here often, who lives near Port as well.
I'm sure Ramble Tamble (Geoff) will find you shortly anyway.
