Hi Everyone, I was just wondering if there are many Carapark Astronaut or Zestline owners still active on the forum?
I have just picked up an Astronaut 15/5, and looking to chat with others that have these unusually styled vans, and possibly share what little information we all have on them. Doing a search there seems to have been a few people ask questions or mention the y have them over time but not sure if people are still on the forum?
How do owners go for replacement parts etc, I am sure some will interchange with other models of similar vintage, but for the specific parts? (tail lights spring to mind as the most obvious) how do you identify the age of these vans?
Just the usual thousand questions from a new Astronaut owner! lol Cheers Matt
P.S. I will post pictures when it arrives home safe and sound
Yes Matt, I have a Zestline! Welcome to the exclusive club. Pic of my "Bess" below, and also of the lights that I took off her and gave to a mate to vac form and then he has lost them..... Happy to investigate options with you to re create them.
I believe Kingy and Austin 125 are the resident Carapark experts so maybe send them a PM. Have a look in the Carapark section of the "Down History Lane" area of the site for more ads and info. I have dated mine from these, as well as the brains trust of members on this site.
Again, welcome, and thanks for saving another piece of history from destruction! Mel
