Welcome aboard Bruce, great intro - very interesting reading. Don't suppose that you have a bushmaster in your garage you could bring to our next run? It would look kind of cool with a Majestic Vanners sticker on the back lol!

Do you still have the HQ? I assume that's it in your avatar?

Unfortunately, no - at $500,000+ each it's a bit too much capital to have lying in the shed.

I traded the HQ back in 1984 and have just embarked on a quest to find it again - I have confirmed with Vicroads that it is still registered and on the road, but in their cute fashion they'll not tell me any more - still working on that angle

Privacy laws! Privacy laws! Often a good excuse to not get involved. Good luck - hope you find it, and let us know if there's anything we can do.

Do you know what the current rego number is?

Nah!!, that'd make it too easy!
(but I'm still working on levering it out of Vicroads)

It's early days yet, but I would appreciate you all keeping an eye out for likely vehicles - it may well have changed color in the last 20-odd years.

See my topic in "Your Van" for some identification clues

Hi folks,

Thought I better make my MV membership official! I'm Simon or more commonly nick-named as Simo (pronounced Symo not Simmo) from somewhere way back in my past!

Am 37yo from Bris Vegas, married with a 13yo daughter (going on 33). I've always loved Vans since I was a kid and currently own the Mr Juicy and Disturbia Valiant Pano's.

Have built a heap of other Valiants over the years incl. a daily driver VG Hardtop Gasser called 'Old Daze' plus a couple of B&W US style cop car VG's, but have only just recently actually got around to owning project Vans which have always been my first love. I've owned a few Holden Vans over the years (HQ, a HJ and HZ) but they were all pretty rough and mainly fill-in cars while I had something else off the road. Also had an Escort Sundowner replica for a couple of years while I was at Uni back in the late 90's.

Currently work as a Accident Vehicle Inspector for the QLD Police where we do mechanicals on cars/bikes/trucks/dozers/wheelchairs etc. involved in any serious or fatal road crashes (see Feb '10 issue of Street Machine mag) and am a freelance contributor to Street Machine and do as many van or Valiant stories as possible (Time Machines on Mr Damage and the Dieckmann silver FJ most recently).

Had a letter published in CV&T No. 30 as a 9yo which pretty much sealed the deal on my lifelong commitment to Vans.

Best part about the Van scene? Vanners love Vans no matter what make or model, whereas the rest of the car scene is always dominated by Ford vs. GM vs. Mopar crap, we just love Vans regardless of make! It's bodyshape over build marque anyday!

have fun

Simo

We're all equals here Perry and thats what makes it what it is.

Great intro Simo, I've read your letter to C,V and T before and it always brings a smile to my face. Reminds me of when I was a young tacker drawing vans at my nans place with my cousin. Wasn't till years later that I realised the reason his door window shape looked funny was because he was drawing XB Fords and I was drawing Holdens! Laughing

Hey Damo, welcome aboard. I think you'll find the people here friendly, and full of some great knowledge when it comes to questions about your HQ.

Hi from Paul and Katie

Post  feel'n uted on Sun 23 Jan 2011, 12:54 am

Hi, I'm Paul and i currently live with my partner Katie and no kids, one dog in Nurioopta, Barossa Valley.
At the moment i am working at a Holden dealer and Katie works for luxaflex window fashions.
working at the Holden dealer is ok but would love to get back into my trade as a spray painter, i really enjoy restoration work over crashed cars.

My dad Ray own's a fully restored FJ Holden ute that my brother (panel beater) and i restored with him back in the good old 90's years ago. Its brought home its fair share of trophy's but the best part was building it together as a family.

For my next project i have a white WB ute in the shed that was my daily drive for a few years. I am the second owner, my dad found it while out working, it had to been registered for a few years and was sheded.
Plans are for a monza styled nose like the alley cat had, bob jane ute rear wing and pump out the wheel arches ......... now if i could only fine them!, not sure of colour yet but will need a mural on the tail gate.

anyway thats a bit about me, i am very happy to have found this sight its just what the doctor order, i felel like i have found home, thanks for having me. Very Happy
