As is to be expected there a few errors in the story, but at least they are getting vans back in to the limelight.

Rather than a poorly researched history on the Sandman I would have liked to see an article more in line with what the story it was reported to be about on the cover. How they are going to be the next great aussie collectable, and what sort of prices they are pulling now. And maybe report on the growing popularity of panel vans again.

It would seem they are using archive photos from a previous article they did a few years back too. I have had this picture on my computer for a few years now:

Yeah the article doesn't really match the cover blurb does it.

I agree Karl it would've been better to see it from a collectable point of view.

200 HQ SS's were built........plus another 2600.  Rolling Eyes

Yes there are some Technical errors in the write up, But it's still good to see any Van in a Mag cheers . When I walk in to a news agent I always look at the covers if it has a van on it I buy it, and I don't have a real big stack Shocked

I supose any Article about any Van's & therefore "THE SANDMAN" is alway's GOOD,
   As Calum said & i say..... My "VAN" book pile is NOT growing at a rappered rate either,

   BUT YES,
        as the Article said on the front cover.......

WHY THE "SHAGGIN" WAGON IS THE NEXT  AUSSIE COLLECTABLE.....
Like the book..... not many around.

that's my say

I expected the same, I actually feel kind of ripped off actually, lol, because I own a Sandman I was lured by the siren song cover.

I want my money back,  Shocked
