For the past seven years the Transit Van Club has been welcoming members to celebrate all things Transit van, the club organises amongst other things, charity events throughout the year. Formed back in 2005 to celebrate the 40th Birthday of what has become the most successful and popular commercial vehicle in Europe, the club has just broken its membership record by welcoming its 1000th member.
The 1000th member of the club Darren Kempton, who owns a 1986 MK 2 LWB Transit was presented with a commemorative certificate to mark the occasion. Darren has also just recently invested in a restoration project, a 1969 MK 1 camper van.
Members of the club often display their vehicles at car rallies and events across the country, the next being the Classic and Vintage Commercial Show on 9/10 June and the 20/22 July Transit Van Club annual rally.
And with more and more new Ford vans being released not only in Europe but across the world, the club is sure to go from strength to strength.
