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.
Car meets are happening again now (at least in my county). This seems to be local groups meeting up in carparks etc, and maintaining appropriate distancing. We are not out of June yet so it is possible we could have some kind of DAF gathering within rules this year. I think 2m has reduced to 1m, but it is not difficult keep apart outdoors. With hindsight I think some events need not have been cancelled, but this threat of Covid needed addressing with zeal.
I thought getting old would take much longer than it did.
Looks like Leicester is heading for another lock down. I worry that the present gung-ho attitude is going to cause many area lock downs if not a country wide one,it's almost as though vast numbers of folks don't still understand the huge implications of this virus. I think the US is an example where millions are now infected because the "President?" gives off a gung-ho persona and there has been a very slow response to the problem. Let's hope the UK doesn't go into another lock down and we can begin to have "meets" again as andrejaun suggests.
