Well ,look what we stumbled across, friends mentioned that they had just aquired a jigsaw of a EH and van parked out side of an old pub, and how it looked so much like our first van. We too noticed a lot of simarlarities, mirors, sunvisor, hotwire mags( now gone), and the van was identicle (before the side flash)- only the colouring differed?. So on completion (hate jigsaws) it was to our surprise the rego no. also matched - This setup is at least two years old. Jenny also painted a scene of Reddo's EK wagon & ''just cruzin'' of which was released on a placematt set There is four different jigsaws in the set - An EK sedan EH wagon Ours And a torana So there ya go, we're now Jigsaw stars
Kingy, I bet you sat up all night doing that mongrel jigsaw, looks like it has over 1200 pieces to it.
That Jenny Sanders does have a soft spot for vintage caravans and old Holdens... I have the coaster set and only one of her calendars, but "Bartel" bring out a calendar with her art work on it just about every year.
Wasn't she the lady who did Reddo's FB and Van? ........available as an Easter Egg & Cup, Coasters, Art Print etc. etc....
Fibreglass fantasia!....a Sunliner, a Carlight Continental plus one for spares (fibreglass roof & ends)... 52 homemade plywood and a Fibreglass Kennedy lookalike awaiting a brand/name (might be Skyline?) ................. EH Premier S/Wagon & '56 FORD Country Sedan for my towcars
Hi Cobber and kingy Yup.. I am familiar with young Jennys work. I have a deal with her. She can use my cars and vans as subject matter in her paintings, placemats, prints, cups, toffee tins, jigsaws.. On one condition. each time our paths cross i get a freebie....... Print from her. Usually catch up with her at NSW All Holden Day.
Not sure if Maurie has the same deal going with her.. he should if he hasnt. Here is a couple of her prints. Excuse the glare on the glass.. i couldnt be bothered taking them down off the wall.
The toffee tin..
That photo was taken at Blacktown swap in 2006... odd thing is that i had the TD on behind the ute. Jenny occasssionally shuffles the vans around.
Here is the 1000 piece puzzle Kingy is talking about.....
Another anomily.. That is "Rosie "on behind the FB wagon. I sold the wagon in 2005 .. and didnt strat work on Rosie until 2008..
Anyway... it doesnt really matter much. Shes makin a quid and our hobby is getting plenty of exposure. Have thought about doing the puzzle and gluing it up inside Rosie o the back wall near the bed....... Be a real bugger tryin ta make the bits sit up without gluing 'em ;D

Any one who is interested can use their own photos to make jigsaws on EUREKA JIGSAW. Iguess you can find it by googling but my sister installed it on my computer . Trouble is I spend too much time making and doing them. It is a great way of remembering those moments.
