    Saw a bright orange restored H van today in South Melbourne. Just arrived from France...

    I'd have no hesitation wearing elbow patches if I owned that...

    Every day when I wake up I reach up in the darkness with my eyes shut and if I cannot feel anything that resembles a wooden lid I know it will be a good day. No lid today.

    hi AJ, isn't that a UK number plate? (Yes, I see its LHD!)

    What are these vans like to drive? Agricultural, noisy/quiet, glide/rough?

    There were only 4 RHD Type H built and only one of them is known to still exist. Registration of a LHD older vehicle in the UK is simple.

    Having driven and travelled in Gerry Freed's Type H over 1000km over a long weekend, I can tell you that at normal road speed they are a little noisy but quite comfy and lug along well. When you are trying to dice with the trucks on the Autoroute at a throat wringing 95 km/h they are challenging. Driving them in modern Paris traffic on a Friday evening is even more so. Not something I would wish to repeat for a long time!

    I sent a French van to Melbourne, which is now locally registered. UFO enjoyed the smooth silent rife of my petrol engined camping car. The Diesels are noisy and relatively slow. However, it is a Traction with attitude and can be driven to make full use of the legendary traction roadholding and at the limits is awesome as it takes roundabouts in top with two tyres screeching. One CCC of NSW member whom I drove down the Champs Elysťes and round the Arc de Triomphe one busy evening (no seat belts) has recently moved into a retirement home. I wondered if there was any connection?
    Sadly mine is up for sale as I have nowhere to store it out of the weather and my driving days are coming to an end. My lasrt drive was from home up the coast road of the Garonne and the Dordogne to Blaye on the Gironde where we held the AGM of Les Ami du Type H. See the web site
