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.

I've become addicted to this guy, and have watched all the HubNut videos about the restoration of his Invacar, from being found in a scrap yard to running through central London. Amazing stuff! I never knew they had a Variomatic transmission system, together with a centrifugal clutch. Oddly the Invacar system doesn't have any vacuum assistance to alter the ratios, so the engine braking is negligible, which when you're driving a plastic 3 wheeled Invacar is "mildly unnerving" to put it mildly.....

On a similar subject, there is another Youtuber posting great vids of classic car road tests. She is not too far from me and I am going to arrange for her to take my 66 and road test it. This will be her first DAF and it would be good to see her appraise other DAF models too should anyone be interested. Her channel name is idriveaclassic.
I thought getting old would take much longer than it did.
