Glad you like her. Yeah, the steering wheels on the wrong side, but I've had several LHD's and its not a problem.

GM did not make any "right hand drive" Astros.
And what I know there are only one "right hand drive" Astro in UK, that´s Chevy Chase´s "home made". :thumbup:

Welcome!

I guess the fun thing about having a LHD in the UK is that you can laugh at the expressions on everyone's face when they see your passenger sleeping and mistakenly think that it's the driver.
