Thanks again dusty..... I think I might put you on the payroll too . like Al... and seeshell... and Don R.... and the anonymous ones who for some strange reason don't wish to be publicly associated with this thread
They got the shape pretty right aye? just needs a water filler and a stripe here or there and they would have to pay royalties... like all the others..... don't

Received my Australia Post Road Trip presentation wallet in the mail today. Very impressive! How much did you say the royalty payment to you was?
Of course I now face a problem...Dona Ricardo and I have already had to give up one room in our house to store all our V V memorabilia, but now we have so much stuff with your van on it that we going to have to build on a separate annexe just to store and display all the stuff with Driftwood on it!! I don't know how you and Mrs Cobber are coping - I reckon you've probably had to move out of your house to live in one of your vans... ;D ;D ;D
The storage or display of all the vintage caravan merchandise available is a bit of a problem isn't it all the Driftwood stuff I just chuck in a cardboard box down in the shed ......... and if you believe that you still believe in Santa Claus
I've taken to modifying some posts on page two of this thread with additional greeting cards that have surfaced so as not to bore people with toooo much trivia, but I have to find somewhere to display it all, I'm thinking of building a display case to hang on the bedroom wall so I can lay there and look at it before turning the light out ...... but I'm meeting with some opposition to the idea, does anybody think "she" is being unfair

Well Cobber, a display hanging at the end of the bed
I do recall you saying a time ago, that the V.V. Forum was the Last thing you looked at as you went to bed, & the First thing you looked at when you woke, ;D ;D... something similar to that anyway. This display case may be the last straw for Mrs Cobber ;D ;D
Today....... truly, just today my attention was drawn to this painting that is on display at the Gippsland Art Gallery.... Thank you I and R
It was done on canvas ( I think) by the well known local artist Bob Hickman and is available ( I think) for you to purchase and present to me for Christmas ( you could first ask Bob if he has a green one )
A European (or American) version....... by an Australian, Matt Mawson and the tow vehicle is a Dalek
A few different tee shirt designs available from Shannon Dand from Gosford for around $28.73 And I bet you all noticed that Shannon has used a painting originally done by Collette the NZ artist...... go back to page 1 reply #19 to see Collette's painting.
And this one might amuse some people... And NO....... the photo was not taken at Coledale.
Are you sure Cobber?? The guy in the budgie smugglers sure looks like you...
G'day Don R,
Treading on dangerous ground here old mate ...... you wouldn't like to hazard a guess as to who the young lady laying luxuriously on the lounge might be.... would you
Anyway..... .... Yvonne and I wish you and Donna..... and all viewers of this interesting thread a merry Christmas and........ maybe a trip to the beach to see if you can find a nice piece of driftwood
Here's an interesting thought, cobber, and one which contravenes talking about prices on this forum...
The (r)evolution graphic in the 2nd T-shirt above shows a 'backpacker' at the start, who is obviously only worth a few quid; and then progressing to a tee-pee, then a tent, which also is obviously only worth a bit more than a few quid. Now, the really interesting bit is the evolution from the "Airport Hilton" van that precedes yours. Said Airport Hilton van recently listed on Gumtree for twenty thousand smackers. Then we have that monster van at the end, which is worth about a squillion dollars. All of which means your Newcastle van in between those two, is worth enough to give you a comfortable retirement. ;D ;D
And now - for something COMPLETELY different - I give you...
cobber's Newcastle caravan!!!! ;D ;D [but in reverse ] :
Hi Franklin1 and Cobber,
These t-shirts were produced for the Australian Caravan Club muster at Mudgee in October last year. I gather that all or almost all of the ACC members have modern vans, but looking at the designs on the t-shirts I feel quite chuffed by the fact that more than 50% of the vans in each design are Vintage Caravans, some of which we know. We V V'ers must be making our mark, thanks partly to this forum!!

By-the-way,.... A director of Charnwood Publishing, the firm who market the items that started this exciting thread... cufflinks, key rings, egg cups, etc.etc.etc. has recently been convicted and gaoled in the UK for BREACH OF COPYRIGHT ........ so there, don't mess with images of poor old Driftwood, OK?
