Nah, the cars shown may be NSW but the bloke is 100% Mexican. You must remember Kustom Image and Freedom Fibreglass were agents for the Victorian manufacturers.

Ok next question, here's an easy one.

Here's two pics of a plaque, one showing the size of it, the other one showing it lite up.

Now here's the questions.

1. What van was it in? (Easy as I know) Shocked Anyone get this wrong and you need a slap
2. Who built the van? (Easy again I know)
3. Where on the van was the plaque located? Have to be specific. (A little harder)

No takers then?

Answer is: Alan Flemming builder of Motivator
Street & Strip Issue #9 had the answer. I have seen many scans from the very article all throughout the forum.

Supposedly Alan worked for Van Craft. Maybe Carring became Vanmakers and then Van Craft? Some old school mexican Vanners should know the answer.

Well I'll be blowed!!

I know Chris (Composite) Walton (Steven's Boats) who worked for both John Evans and Allan Flemming. Next time I catch up with him I'll ask him what he knows.

Chris is a Good Mate of John's.

Good Questions Rob.

The 1st 2 are too easy. Like you said, if you can't get it you need a nuts

I'll let someone else answer.

If no takers on the 3rd, I have a pic of where the Plaque was mounted. It might already be on here.

Spot on Mark!

The answers were:

1. What van? The Wizard! geek
2. Who built it? Fuzz Heinrich.
3. Where was plaque located? It's the original plaque out of the back of the van that was located on the drivers side wall.

Here's a pic with it in the van.

Name the Ford Falcon Van (There may have been more than 1, but only 1 I know of) that had HR Holden Headlight Surrounds.

I seem to remember some god awful thing with a mesh grill and maybe flame? or blend paint job on a XA/B?
I have it in one of the magazines. Just can't be bothered looking through them all chasing an ugly bucket!

I also seem to remember something with quad lights.

HR headlight rims? Yeah they'll suit a Ford for sure ... jocolor

I know the one you're thinking of James. Was it Dream Weaver or something like that? Didn't it have a Perspex Wing on it? Was it White, Yellow and Blue?

As they say: "Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder." lol!

Yes this Van had four (4) Headlights c/w HR Headlight Surrounds.

It has a different name, but may have evolved into the other one.
