Welcome to the DAF Owners Club discussion forums. These have been online since 2004 and are open to anyone - club member or not.
The DAF Owners Club has been the original and leading source of information about DAF Variomatic cars in the UK since 1980.
We are known throughout this country and abroad for providing accurate and relevant help and advice about DAFs and the Variomatic transmission.
We also provide new specialist spares including drive belts and filters and we supply to the UK and worldwide.
More information about DAFs and the club at the main website - www.dafownersclub.co.uk.
I'm having a clear-out and have come across a huge pile of old "Autocar" magazines. These were collected by my late Father and I acquired them when he died. I have read them all, including some beautifully dated pieces about how cars will develop in the future; isn't hindsight a great thing? No Daf stuff whatsoever, nor any hint of anything belt driven, but a series of fascinating reads, nevertheless.
They're free, gratis and yours for nothing & nowt, BUT they weigh a lot (& I DO mean a LOT!) so postage is out of the question! I'm planning to attend the Daf Owners Club A.G.M. in Derbyshire at the beginning of April, so any club members who want them and are attending please get in touch. If anyone wants to come and get them I live in Barnet, on the borders of north London and Hertfordshire, so PM me and if anyone wants them delivered I'm happy so to do (might even deliver them in a Daf....) for the cost of the petrol and associated pork pies and beer.
Ideally one would have this pile of reading material beside one, on a winter's evening, and dip into one or two while relaxing in one's leather armchair, a glass of something amber with ice and soda on the table next to one, while considering the merits of the Armstrong Siddeley verses the Alvis......
