I have just returned from a camping trip in my 21 year old Traffic camper van.
It's a pleasure to drive and take life easy in the slow lane listening to the reassuring sound of the trusty old 2 litre diesel engine.
No turbo no power steering no ecu no sensors, senders or abs no particle filter, automatic head lamps and no problems.
i do miss the older car layouts so much easier to work and repair on
