We are located in Sweden, pretty far up North. We have lived in many places already (Germany, US
"New Jersey, Florida & Nevada"), we where looking to move back to the US in Spring '10, but now many things came up and we are staying here.
We where/are the proud owners of 15 VW T3 Syncros, which we have just outgrown. Yeah, have a couple of them. Just started to collect them and drive them.
These are neat little Vans, just Cool.
We though we are going to move, so I started searching what kind of 4x4 we want to drive and stumbled onto http://www.thundergarage.com
and from there we quickly found Sportsmobile. After doing searching and googling on the Net we were falling more and more into love with the design.
Now we started to talk to Liz at Sportsmobile. We knew that I would be doing the Inside myself, just the Pop-Top and some other things, hm. Many questions later, with lightning fast responses from Liz we were sold That our next car/van would be a 4x4 Diesel Van with a Pop Top. Since my dream engine would be a 5,9L cummins, there shall be lots of work ahead of us.
Now since we are staying here in europe, Parts are much harder to come by and many things will have to come from the USA (Van, Roof, Bumpers, ..., also some Goodies we just miss: Mac&Cheese, Oreo Cake, Corn Beef Hash, ...). We will be buying the van in about 2 Months, since i have to decied on many things before it becomes shiped. Through the engine will stay a 7.3L Powerstroke for the start.
So we will be having some questions and viewing many Pics from your Vans.
Thanks for such a Info Pack Forum
Mike, Nikki & Shawnee
P.S.: I have seen 2 People from Switzerland and one from Iceland, anybody else from Europe?
