"And don't worry bout what we think. Remember we're the wretched refuse you threw out of your country. Keep up the good work and stay in touch. Maybe we can set up a small parts life line if you really get stuck"

Reply: Thanks for your positive words of encouragement,,, and there is NO WAY that I'd ever consider my cousins across the pond in such a degrading manner.
Hell, if I could, I'd be over there with you, not here in this overcrowded island sinking under a pile of European rules, immigrants and inept politicians !
I own a 1989 Astro RS and it has the same mirrors as yours. I like the older style mirrors too but they are all broken here in the local Salvage yards. I am in California USA.

Reply: When I bought my 88Astro it had been retro-fitted with the later mirrors, I searched around looking for a pair of the 1985 'stalk' type, Just when I found a fellow Englishman willing to sell me a pair, these slightly later type also turned up. I think these are probably the best type, so I've got the '85' ones as spares.
(remember many of our country roads aren't wide enough for two Astro's to pass each other, without some contact!!)
Just keeps on getting better and better. Super nice van Sir !
Thanks for your remarks,, I must admit tho' that it's not 'show' worthy, but looks kinda OK on the road!
