Van Nats 2017 Port Fairy.

Post  383 on Sun 23 Apr 2017, 10:53 pm

Hey all, Van Nats is over for another year.
As always it was a huge weekend. Great opportunity for us to catch up with many MV members from near and far. As well as meet other Vanner's and see vans we hadn't seen before.
Sanbox crew tracked west out of Melbourne Thursday morning early met Greg and his Ej, my eldest son drove Angeliques Vz, as she dragged the caravan with the ute.
We arrived in Port Fairy before lunch and set up MV central. Chris Van being a local had been there the night before and give us the good oil on where to set up.
Thursday afternoon more of our crew rolled in, by Friday morning it was looking like a real camp.

Chris Van new some local haunts we could see. Friday afternoon Chris took us to Tower Hill a local inactive volcano. We first cruised through the base of the volcano, much to the delight of many onlookers. Cruised to the top to the lookout.












Left Tower Hill cruised back to Port Fairy along Beach road.

Saturday morning saw most of the crew towelling the dew off the vans, luckily we didn't need the car wash all weekend as Chris tells us most of the town water is brackish.
Nats organisers had us road tripping back to Terang for a visit to Modelbarn. Robert and Jenny Pollard have operated this business for more than thirty years, now a large shed and museum situated on the highway. They used to operate from a shed on a dairy farm years back. They have large stock of plastic models as well as a lot of die cast. Robert has amassed a large collection of plastic and die cast which make up his museum display.

After spending a couple of hours at Modelbarn and a sausage sizzle, drinks, coffee and tea provided by the organisers. The MV crew cruised back via Warrnambool, Chris took us to Logan's Beach for a stop over.

What a great weekend it was spent with the Majestic crew and other vanners from right across Australia!

Thanks for sharing your pics Joe and Angelique, here are a few of mine:



















































It has been a massive couple of weeks for me since getting back from Port Fairy, busy renovating my house preparing it for market, on top of smashing the overtime at work. I will upload more pics when time and my ridiculously slow internet allows. More than likely next week sometime after getting back from Tumut. Cheers.

Great shots Joe and Karl.
Getting a better feeling for the event with every post.
Haven't seen the Van "Enigma" before (looks like it might be another Kelley Van?)
More photos of this one?

Good to see "Foxy Lady" with a traditional bonnet back on it.
Would have loved to have seen them all used on the street run on video. (Maybe) that should be compulsory at a Van-In/Van Nats to be eligible for trophies.
That way the same Vans mightn't always wins year in year out. Or at the very least put on a better weekend/event display to the public.

If we keep dishing up the same we'll keep getting the same in return (or less!)

Thanks Karl,

That's awesome, I appreciate it. I do like it, not everything but the general concept for sure.
Great to see a new Van on the scene.

Awesome!

Glad to see the turn out was bigger than who was on the run.
How about the mural of the Valiant on the Valiant? It's like the painter who has nothing to paint so looks into a mirror and paints themself!

Lots of know Vans in that bunch.

Thanks for posting them up.

Yeah it was a good turn out, 98 vans for the Show and shine, 38 for MV! This won us the Best Club Display and Club Participation awards come presentations.

An excellent result for Majestics and the forth time we have won those awards.

Well done to all the Majestic's that attended!

Great job with the images guys.
The black vans look a treat altogether Joe.

I must get out more in the following months.
It's great to be a Vanner!
