Ahhhhh... those pics bring back memories... (from a couple of hours ago Very Happy )

The rain and clouds disappeared just in time for a midday start and was great to see all that went.
Had some good chats and was able to see some old pics from Vannings heydays!

My van might not be finished by the next one... but I'll make sure it is road worthy enough to attend.

Was happy to see the vans that were there up close and will post some pics soon.

Thankyou to all involved in the organising and to all who went.

Thanks for the day.
VERY HAPPY INDEED!!!
Spent a lot of time talking to one of my idols in the van scene. Found out a wealth of information from him. Very Happy Very Happy
I could have spent MANY hours talking about his van.
Got an autograph on his feature in a magazine and also a small trophy from him. Now a VERY HAPPY person.
Could have chatted more but i had to leave and he needed a break from me.
Thanks again ROB (Fuzz) you made my day!!!!
Also spoke to Dave Marsh (Street Legal) for a while as well. Very Happy

All in all had a fantastic time and you can put my name down for the next reunion.
Special thanks go to Rob, Rhino, Smqqth Chris & Rusty. You receive a pat on the back for a job well done.

It was a great day and those who couldn't make it really missed a memorable event. The photos and other bits of memorabilia - was like a flood of great memories

My thanks to Rob & Brian and all the others in organising and making us old fellas feel really welcome. It was so good catching up with everyone there.

Cant wait for the next one!!

Had a great time also and thanks to everyone for the effort and organisation. I have to say Fuzz that you Sir would be the life of any party - this bloke has some serious wit and had me laughing my ass off for a lot of the day. I really liked the way that Fuzz and a lot of the other old school Vanners present were happy to talk with us, show photos and generally let us pick their brains/pry into their lives without any hesitation. I mentioned to a couple how they'd really made their mark with the Vans they had built, and Fuzz, Steve Haines, Steve Towers, Dave Marsh, Robb Howard, Keith Boots etc. all seemed very humbled by the interest and attention.

It was a pleasure to meet you and many of the other folks from Majestics and I look forward to the next one!

Was great to meet you in person (finally) Greg, glad to see the Holden V8 still runs strong in your blood! And just to bring everyone else up to speed, the Time Machine article on Greg and Invader is slated for the Jan or Feb issue of Street Machine.

have fun

Gday everyone,

I merged the topic from the general section into this thread for easier reading! Now......

I'd like to thank everyone for making the time to attend our vanning legends reunion, thank the legends for attending and giving us other guys a chance to chat to the guys that built the vans that we aspired to built when we were younger and dreamed about as teens at school.

Huge thanks to everyone that signed memorabilia for me and the other van groupies, thanks to Fuzz for his generous contribution to my vanning museum/shrine that's taking shape nicely. This was totally unexpected and I cant explain how much this honestly means to me.(Really looking forward to sharing some drinks with any vanner that blows in for a look when down this way!)

Big thank you to John Schouten for presenting Brian and myself with our plaques of appreciation, this was totally unexpected and a great surprise.

Another huge thank you to everyone that brought memorabilia to share with others.

I really love the way this is a two way street, we love having the chance to talk to and ask our vanning idols questions and share their tales of high jinx and triumphs and after talking to a few of them over the weekend they love the fact that we're taking an interest in what they did and preserving the history of vanning for future generations.

Thanks for an awesome weekend guys, I'm to looking forward to the next one just as much as the rest of you.........now I just have to get onto Rhino and we'll organise it! Very Happy

MV forever!!!!!
Still Australia's leading Van Group! Laughing

Cheers Rob

Thank fark for that, the merging of the threads at least explains that I'm not going mental and posting nearly the same info one after the other...

I've been on a high all day after yesterday and will keep the dream alive as long as possible before work tomorrow smashes me down to earth again! What I can't get over is how quick the 10 hours went! I felt like there were so many people I didn't get to have a good chat with and apologies for that, but was flat out the whole time !?!?! Jon even made the comment 'that I never stop' but was glad to be able to wear both the Van fan and mag reporter hats and will do everything in my power to make you all proud of the write-up.

Here's some pics I managed to remember to snap:

From the Keith Boots 'Shamrock' collection:







Keith Boots, myself and Frank Lee:



The East Coast guys:



Robb Howard (L) and Greg Mercer (R) have shared the cover for 30-odd years but met for the first time yesterday:



A modern day artefact from the Fuzz collection:



Brian was kind enough to let me hug AC:



And some momentos; a bubble window name register of the day:



and the glovebox lid safe and sound back in Disturbia:



have fun

Simo

cant say i can ever remember seeing Shamrock before but from the looks of those pics and date on that plaque/plate (Jan 78) could it be that Shamrock was the original van to that style of paint scheme that was later made famous by, and expanded upon, the likes of Checkmate, Street Legal and Innervisions???

Sorry i missed it, looks like it was a great day
