    Hi All,

    My name is Kew and have recently purchased a 1985 T3 DH after admiring the T3's for many years. I purchased the van from a great guy up in Qld that had owned it for 20+ years, and who was very sad to see it go. I was on my way to buy a relatively new hiace that I'd inspected the day before, when I stumbled across this one being advertised nearby, and the hiace was soon forgotten!

    The information and knowledge of the members on here looks tremendous, and I'll be picking the brains of the T3 guys very shortly with my first little electrical issue...

    Look forward to chatting and hopefully meeting some of you someday,

    Cheers, Kew

    The wheels may have been on an Audi, as no Alfa Romeo wheels have the same hole pattern as a T3...;)

    Wheels look like the 1/2 painted EMPI Fuchs to me?

    No?

    Excellent purchase! and equally fantastic side step of an old dodgy Hiace van :D
