OK just a bit of fun show us your van.
We have an old A class our first motorhome model I6571B
08? Old? The one I replaced about 18 months ago was a 1990.
Like your dog
Looks a lovely MH!
Great looking van, is there lots of room inside, i would love to see the interior
Here you go!
This is "as bought" in 2011 and the picture is often referred to as the one where my lovely wife Andrea is counting the cost!
We spent years researching before we bought our first motorhome and it remains the perfect (for us) layout. I'm a bit of a tinkerer (not the Techno100 standard, mind) and have carried out many modifications, improvements and repairs. We have travelled to France, Spain, Portugal and Italy and are still to complete our circumnavigation of the UK.
Is now reregistered JJY 567 and has Smiley stickers, if anyone sees us stop or a chat. Quite often spotted in the paddock (or as near as we can get) as we support a classic Super Tourer, it's a red Nissan Primera if anyone remembers the late 90s BTCC racing.
Hope we meet up sometime
This is mine, had here for 18 months now and travelled all over Europe.
I remember BTCC from the 90s ! My son is now a circuit commentator albeit at club level so looking forward to seeing you on a paddock somewhere !
my van is old and battered do you rely want to see it
Wow! I am always very surprised at the interest these cars attract from both youngsters who seem very knowledgeable and those who remember the actual racing. Most seem to remember the stir Matt Neal caused by eating the factory teams in his red Nissan and winning a huge (in those days) prize fund. Donnington Historic Festival, Brands Hatch Masters Historic, Silverstone Classic and Rockingham BTCC meetings this year.
The old ones have more character !
Will get some taken!
so I take it dents and scratches rust are character
So is this the currently owned car of Dave Jarman ?
Yes it is. Dave and I have been friends since our teens and started our apprenticeships at the same company. We both had MGBs in our early twenties, Dave's a tuned B series and mine a V8. I've still got mine but Dave went the Datsun route with a Samurai which was his stepfathers. I supported him in the Formula Saloon days where the Nissan travelled in a converted horsebox with a (precarious) extended tail lift. It's quite something to turn up in a shabby old lorry and beat the big boys working from their custom artic lorries with hordes of liveried mechanics. Not much better now, Dave tows with his Chausson Allegro but we don't do so well these days with the arrival of the "professionals". I like to think we are the best of the rest!
Thanks for taking an interest.
