Hi guys my names Michael, I'm Rob's cousin and already know quite a few of you as I've been a member since MV virtually started. I own a heap of toys including a LH SL/R 5000, VH Commodore, HQ Statesman and Gemini van. I live in Holbrook but work in Tumut at the same place as my little cousin. My Gemini's currently unregistered as it still needs a little bit of work to get her on the road, it's chrome yellow with gold pearl and has a cream leather interior and some 15 inch bling wheels. Laughing
Look forward to catching up with a few of you guys again and catching up and meeting some of the newer members.
Cheers Michael

Hi,my name is Phil from sunny WA and I've got a WB windowless van.It is an ex police van originally a 6 cyl/auto.
I painted it flat black because I wanted a hassle free car to enjoy.The van now runs a 350 with an
under bonnet blower and turbo 350 box and the van was made out of my spare parts collection,
including the drive train.
Through the 80's I always had vans,including a couple of Sandmans,and had some great times with
them but then marraige,kids,mortgage,sensible family car,etc...and my cars got pushed down the list.I'm sure you can relate.But now the kids have grown up and no mortgage and spare time.I've also got a HQ SS,88 Corvette and a big block one tonner.

Welcome Dean

That's a weapon of a van you've got yourself there....
Andrew (previous/previous owner/ builder)and I had some good times with that van in toe.

Would love a get together in Tasmania,
got some close friends that I'd love too see down there again in Hobart.

Did try to get a Van Nationals down there one year, but was squashed by the powers to be,
that it was too far away, and nobody would be prepared to get on the boat.!!
Imagine several of us MV'ers travelling down there it'd be a real hoot.

maybe, just maybe....

Welcome again, it'll feel like your on the mainland on this forumn.

Cheers Al. alien alien alien alien alien

Introducing BarbadosGreen

Post  Barbados Green on Tue 30 Nov 2010, 12:52 am

Found this topic as I was browsing the forum and thought I'd do my bit.

I'm Bruce Wilson and I was born and raised in Surrey Hills (Melbourne).
After qualifying in Mechanical Engineering at Swinburne University, moved to Bendigo as a public servant working at the Ordnance Factory that had been built there during WWII (that's another story in itself).

I was 20 years old at this time and already had my first panel van - a white EH that I bought from dad for $315 !!. He was a shopfitter and used it as a daily work vehicle for the previous 6 years.

I did a lot of work on the EH, mainly to bring it up to "as-new" spec:

New suspension rubber (bushes & pads) throughout.
Rust repairs
Overhauled the gearbox - I couldn't get over how small the 3sp box was - not much bigger than a football!
The engine had almost 100,000 MILES on it and need no work at all - they built good motors then.
New weather seals throughout.

Then it was time to buy myself a belated 21st birthday present - the HQ.
I ordered it in March 1974 and it was over 5 months before it went onto the line in Adelaide (I guess it was the options I ordered).

When I took delivery in September 1974, I was a very happy lad!

(The Barbados Green color no doubt added to the uniqueness of the vehicle - this was pre- Sandman era)

Unfortunately the EH had a sad ending- after I sold it to a work colleague in Bendigo, his hoon of a son wrote it off 3 weeks later.

I'll tell the HQ's story in other topics.

I spent over 30 years at the Factory in Bendigo, and during the 5 years before I retired (Parkinsons Disease) I was a member of the design group the produced what may be (to a warped mind) the greatest "Panel Van" ever - Bushmaster, below.



Almost a thousand of these vehicles have been built, in Bendigo, for the Australian Army and other forces around the world
Read more at:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bushmaster_Protected_Mobility_Vehicle

I'll tell you more about Bushmaster somewhere else - maybe "General Chat"
