How did this thread survive the great thread purge of 200? when a lot of older stuff got deleted?

Good that it did though.

Unusual how they used the R100 mirrors and choke lever (And on those fitted with a wireless, had the aerial on the roof, not the front wing) on anything past a G-Reg, yet this van seems to be positively Austin, on a J plate?

Very pleasing to the eye though.
You can please all of the people some of the time, and some of the people all of the time... But you can't please the lot of 'em permanantly!!!
