Younger models are great. Better bodywork,firmer seating and clearer more upright headlights. The downside is that they tend to be a bit wanting and need more looking after and a full valet more often. I prefer my nice reliable present model. Like me easy to maintain and service with no expensive parts. Also when it does go wrong it's just something simple that is easily resolved and it's up and running again.

If anyone wants to follow this van as it variously explodes, goes camping, gets rusty, gets sold for a quid, and so on, please check here -

I saw two Sherpas in one day last week, but I was in some other heap at the time, so there was no chance of Sherpa driver noddage.

 

Here are LBC and the van in the scrapyard of shame aka my parking area after returning from MISSION GINSTERS and STROKER last week.
