Christmas is here.

Christmas is here again, and a J Van is perfect for delivering Santa.

Our Moke didn't get forgotten
And of course, Santa had to go home again.
Happy Christmas from down under

While we were in UK for a holiday we found out that the NATIONAL MICROCAR RALLY was being held. Now that was another must




Bond Bug's

And sundry Microcars

Well worth the trip – there were about 90 Miro cars and it was a nice fine day.
The Event was run this year by the Heinkel Trojan Club UK. A great effort – Well done guys.

Scotland, a private museum visited.

After we went to the Messerschmitt meet in Kelso Scotland, we were told of someone in Scotland who had a couple of J Vans. Seeing as we were near, we made an appointment to visit.
 Well he didn't just have 2 J Vans he had about 10 J Vans, 2 under restoration, and the rest finished. Not only that, but he had about 500 vehicles in 4 big sheds in his private collection, all dusted off and ready to go. 
Cars, vans, trucks, diggers, and even a tank. Now that is what you call a proper collection.

Oz visits the UK.

We recently had a holiday in UK and as a Messerschmitt rally was being held, we just had to attend.

The Meet was held in Kelso Scotland and over 40 Messerschmitts were in attendance. They did some long runs (over 90 miles a run) and even though they are old, they certainly are not just show cars. It was high summer in UK, and it could have been warmer. Ah, but we are Australian!

Winton 2016

We have our Heinkel finished now - we had needed to recondition the clutch and gearbox in order to change gears!
We were invited to a Vintage car race day, and displayed our Heinkel (the red one) and found another Heinkel (the yellow one) to invite along to join us.
The race track was some 240 km North of Melbourne, so we displayed the cars together all day, and were invited in the middle of the day to do a few SLOW laps on the track

It was a good outing but a long way to travel - definatly a trailer job for the Heinkel's transport to the show.

"Morris Register" National Raly, Our Easter treat.

We took the Van away for Easter to a "Morris Register" National Raly. The Rally was some 250 km away, so we borrowed a trailer, from a fellow "J" Van owner
And there were about 100 "Morris's" taking part

We were meant to "Dress for the Period of the Vehicle" so Dust Coats with a "Morris Register" emblem on the pocket seemed appropriate
And seeing as it was Easter, one of the themed dinners was "Dressing with an Easter Theme" - Annette made a good attempt but there was no prize for us, as there were much better attempts by others!

Our latest outing with the Messerschmitt

We hadn't taken the Messerschmitt out for a while, so we found a Nice CAR BIKE & TRUCK show for an outing.
No prizes, but lots of admiration.
The Messerschmitt is a 1960, so when we found a 1959 Goggomobile Dart at the show we HAD to have a picture.

The trucks were that much bigger than the Messerschmitt, - We don't get in traffic with something that big!
