i simply could not imagine 7,600 vans..... awesome, you just simply wouldn't get to see them all, would you?
I had trouble enough this year seeing the ones that we had (not sure how many) too busy workin to look and count - fun , but!

now, you know me, i'm a holden girl through and through.... but, at the state titles, I finally got to see TimeWarp in the flesh and met Rod. For a Ford, that is a very very neat van... he will hopefully be at the nats....

Early vans

Post by angliadon on 20/7/2009, 1:33 pm

I went to Roselands Hotrod Show in 1968 in my red FB van and there was a trophy winning Chocolate Brown windowless FC van on display. Custom Rodder did Carpark photos at the show and my FB was one of them,a few years before CV&t started.
