My particular favourite is the Citroen H. I used to see one in Lincoln and often thought what if?
Cheers

I have Belgian roots and remember those H vans over there, they were as common as Transits are now over here. There is a guy here in Mold who is obviously a Citroen fanatic as he has a 2CV as well as an H van. (left-hand drive of course)

No. It was one guy on his own and he had another slide out on the other side as well.

Hi Dandywarhol.

You must have been very proud of that van when you owned it, hence still using it as your avitar. With a bit if luck you may get to see it again when its been refurbished.

Yep, it's well underway with it's surgery...........There were officially 21 units made by the BMC factory - they toured worldwide as training vehicles, often in pairs. One was a workshop and the other a mobile training room. I bought mine after it was converted by Thomson Caravans in the early 80s

Here's a link to what happened to the odd number..................luverly eh?

Hi Dandywarhol.
Love the red white and blue paint job, very patriotic. I had a Vauxhall Cresta with tail fins like that. Nice one, no wonder you where proud of yours.

Hi Dandywarhol.

Cannot disagree its clever, but would it be practical in your neck of the woods with the wind etc. Mind you I get vertigo just thinking about getting in to a luton.
