hi from england

Postby steve the pirate [OP] » January 6th 2011, 8:12am

hi all,
My name is steve.I have just joined the uk owners club and now this one :)
I have an 1995 chevy astro I got from a dealer in sheffield,uk in 2008.I fell in love with her before I went to see her.She is my first yank and even though petrol is getting expensive I dont want to sell her.I do not use her for work as it is only a mile away so I walk.
I have made some additions and will put some pics up in a minute.I wanted to still use all the 7 seats but I love my music so I have good sounds,dvd,xbox360 and a ps2.
I am trying to arrange mini meets in the uk for members so If you are anywhere near me in broxbourne,herts then please let me know.

Hello to the Pirate from England 8-)

Are you going to or did you build a sub enclosure/console box between the front seats? They work great!

I see you manage a bike shop but don't list bikes in your interests :poke: :lol: (I ride Downhill/Freeride MTB)

thanks for the kind welcome guys.
I tried 2 10" subs in slightly smaller boxes one firing forward and one firing back but it was not enough so one day I carried out a double box and it fitted perfect between the front seats.I have 2 12" mtx subs firing back with a 19" samsung widescreen above them.I will post some pics up soon.

I'm not too far away in Ilford. see my map. My wife hates the 'heap' also.
There's no music system in mines.(apart from tv/dvd) Only listen to sports and news but will fit a cd one day, somehow.
I went to Sheffield to look at some vans but they didn't have any good ones. Got mine from Peterborough's Astroland.
