New owner with a few pics..............Hello all !

Hi all,

My name is Kevin and I live in the North East of England. After looking for something 'ready to use' for a little while, I bought my Portafold last summer but have just got around to loading up some pics - so I thought I would share them in case anyone was interested. I do have a few old classic cars, predominantly VW or older aircooled Porsche, but pulled my Portafold around last year with my Skoda Fun pickup as it was the only thing I had at the time that had a towbar :roll:

It doesn't really need five to put up the awning, but it was the first time and we were 'trying it out' :lol:

I hope to see some of you around this year 8)

Cheers,


Kevin
ps - many thanks to Matthew for identifying my Portafold as a 68'

Hiya Kevin. Recently sold my Fun pick-up. Just got a portafold myself but it needs some work. Hopefully catch up with you at some meet or other (I also attend VW shows, did E38, Dubmania and a few others this year) Welcome to the portafold forum. :thumbup:

Hi, thanks Reggie. A constantly, changing stock :roll: . Over the last few years: couple of Trekkers, Splitscreen Crewie, Karmann Ghia Cabriolet, Fasty, couple of Polo's, several Scirocco's, T4, but believe it or not, one of the most enjoyable (and the cheapest) was an 83' Santa GX5 with a throaty 5 pot 2 litre motor - lovely.

I now have in various states of repair; MK1 Scirocco, Skoda Fun Pickup, T4 Caravelle, Early Type 2 panel Van, 356, 914, early 911. Sounds a lot but not all are working :cry:

Hi, Thanks for the welcome. I love the Skoda, so versatile. I get to as many shows as I can (did 3/4 this year) but it's difficult as I live up North as most of the better ones are a long way away. Hopefully that will change next year with the Portafold. Looking forward to seeing a few of you next year 8)

Cheers,


Kevin
