    I love it ... a real work of art.

    I would put an offer in but for the smell of his pipe and the CO from that water heater.;)

    Go on Dave you know you want to!

    Looks like great nostalgic fun. The gear stick looked like a broomstick in a bucket of pebbles and I'd like to have heard the engine when he changed gear. I'd have it, always wanted a log burner in a van ;)

    All gearboxes used to be like that Jim. Even when new. Old school drivers and all that stuff :D.

    I remember taking my HGV3 test in an old 3tonner with no syncromesh, a 3ft long gear stick; wiggle it, do a little Irish jig on the clutch and and accelerator and then have a good guess as to where it should go next :)

    Am shocked and stunned JJ. I was under the impression you would have been trying to find a buyer for your soul this morning. Just goes to show what a poor judge of character I am :).

    Love the look of it but being practical wouldn't want to own it. Too big and difficult to drive very far and parking would be a nightmare........

    Ideal to spend the winters away just do a few km's every day or every few weeks. Not built for speed. Just built to relax.
    and can be repaired anywhere no computer needed.
