Thanks for your post, just emails the guy on olympics caravans ,found on humpty's listing
actully this is not my van its my girlfriends, im looking for more info for her as she cannot,
the last few days looking on this site i'm actually thinking of buying it myself except my husband would have a heart attack?
i am a book collector have over 10,000, and got into records about 3 years ago have about 6,000, if i bought home a van he would flip 2 people in a large 4 brm house with a loft and he can't get anything in.
theres something about this site that actually is addictive i havent got any caravan books at this time that i know of, but will keep an eye out and let you know in the future and proceeds will go to this site for fees.
can anyone send me details on what books/mags to look out for?
The "Olympic Guru" is travelling Australia right now and indicated he would not be back till about Christmas time. From what I see of the trim & mouldings it as a late 60's possibly 70's van . If you want to try an email, try.... firstname.lastname@example.org.....he does have a mobile...0428850666. His name is Bob!..........and he will know everything about that van.....I have seen pictures in his portfolio. Try and have the chassis number available. It should be on the underside of the A frame
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
Dont ask JBJ where he got his name - but I will tell you -... its because he should be behind jail bars for making his alcoholic juice.! It was quite potent and at least Reddo, schultzy me and a few others can vouch for that!!! Thank goodness it wont be available at Coledale. ( look it up - you should get there! ;D )
If you are only new to Vintage Caravanning, then good luck! I now have 3 vans dunno what to do with them but I luv 'em.

I know nothing about the Olympic as unfortunately I am probably as new to this as you are.
One word of warning... DON'T get into this vintage van stuff, it ought to come with a government health warning on it. It's totally compulsive I would say, you just don't realize it when you first look.... it seems so innocent!
My own sad story is just one of a million that I feel sure have been told down the years and a prime case in example
There I was just a few months ago, a sane, normal person. I was just looking for a van to stick out the back to house relations from South Africa that were coming to stay by me for a while. Any old van would do, as long as it had bedrooms and didn't leak. And then IT happened.... I found a vintage van, totally wrecked, needing more than a complete rebuild, refurbish and the like. It cost sooooo much money to purchase it and get it back to where I live (nearly 1200 dollars). But I had to have it, and believe me I am not one to spend money easily And this is coming from a woman with not only very little practical experience, but also from one who is going into hospital in just over 2 weeks time for a hip replacement operation. See I told you, pure madness.
Why did I do it, well who can say, just seems to get under the skin and into the blood system... that's a point... I wonder if anything will show up in the blood tests I had done today
On the reverse side though, there are compensations. You get to drop in on this site and talk to like-minded people, who I feel sure will turn into real good buddies over time.
Over to you to make your own judgement ;D ;D ;D ;D
