Hey Glynn, what happened to Houdini?....or are you saving that name for a certain panelbeater....
He has made big progress, I wouldn't ever call him houdini as he has no where to escape. I have a reciept that states job to be completed in 6 months. That was signed on 26.2.07 and I haven't pushed it.
All the floor and interior mods are allegedly completed & he is knocking out the outside dents. He knows I will be up in a fortnight & I expect a lot of progress. I just have to be patient.
The bottom line is he is a mate, I knew what he was like when I agreed to let him do it. He is one of the top panel beaters and more importantly is cheap.
Regards, Glynn I'm going to live to 100 ! cos only tha good die young
After much agonising and going through countless names (the usual...Tardis etc), Carrots and I have finally settled on a name for the travelling Valiant....."Lady Madonna". As the van is a 1968 model and Lady Madonna was released by the Beatles in that year, it seemed appropriate (I'm Beatles nut from way back then ).
Why is it that most cars/caravans/ships etc have predominately female names? Bet that opens a can of worms ;D
Alcohol may not solve your problems, but neither will water or milk
The name "Fred" comes to mind but he isnt a caravan as such. Thats the only "Boy van " i can think of So..... T'is Ok to give things that are bound to give you trouble womans names. ( here lies the preverbial tin of worms guys ) I struggle with "Lady" Madonna.. i keep getting visions of the rock industry Madonna... and she aint no lady.
However i feel that the Daggsey Madonna may be of impeccable blue blood breeding and would not allow herself to do "lewid acts" on the highway behind his car. Just make sure that all german shepherds are kept away from her wheels.
Atog... I reckon Marvin is one smooth classic van. Just compare his lines to the Fugly Sutcac Expanda Bundy Carton........ How do ya think Collide & Barb arrived at the name . However The expanda van has got some qualitys about it that a lot of us wish we had in our vans.( the nice clause that saves Reddo getting punched by Sutcac ) I'm Just waiting for someone to paint thier Propert white and stick dots from 1 to 6 on all of the sides. "The Dice" ;D ;D ;D we already have Ray Roehms "Rubiks Cube". To finish off "the tin of worms" hows about Kaybees new aquisition "The Termite Castle" ;D ;D ;D ;D
Hi I have made a decision on the name of my globetrotter She will forevermore be know as GIDGET . Very 60,s and starts with G as in Globetrotter. Should soon have some more pics as her preservation is progressing well. Leanne ;D ;D
I WAS gonna call my Propert "Werner", but have trouble giving it a guy's name, for all the reasons Reddo has already expounded upon. As I'm in the middle of rebuilding the interior, have been cogitating whether to call it "licorice allsorts", as, it will end up having 9 different colours in/on it But it simply wasn't classy enuff!! After all, it was coined by a guy who calls his own van "Fugly" - enuff said there! So, I hereby declare that my Propert will henceforth be known as "Rubic's Kube", just so that nobody else pinches that name ;D ;D ;D Thanks Reddo

Greetings all Minicamper Your right .... and so am I... we are saying the same thing. Sorry to all the others on this thread I hate to Borg you all. (Minicamper knows) I have children that is my excuse for knowing all this ........ stuff.
Reddo If your TD is to be called "kennel" it could have a canal bar on it or a kennel bar Usually found on the passengers side of a 4wd so the passenger going over bumps can grab it and yell out "distant canal" or something similar....... Yes we're on the same page ;D ;D
OK, my turn. Owing to the smallness of my 1950 Caravan Park Ltd. Hunter Minor, namely 10 foot by six foot and the fact that I spent from 1999 to 2001 living in it while I was building the house, and sharing it with a computer of the large variety, laser printer, scanner, modem and small TV, I don't need to give much thought to a name for her. I think I have decided upon...... "CRAMPED" There were no heating bills to pay though as cooking tea at night was all the warmth I needed! Eat it in bed at night and watch the TV. phargan

while at mount gambier for the nationals......we had daggsey sign write " HERBIE " on the side of our van herbie is after Herbert Pruser owner/ builder of roadhaven vans between 1952/1970 thanks daggsey f/f ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D
Great fun naming old caravans! Ours got called "The Bondwood Suite" after some friends stayed a couple of nights in it! They were so impressed that they didn't have to sleep in a tent on the ground. Since then the name has stuck - however - occasionally it's referred to as "Marjie's Blondwood" just so everyone knows who's the responsible owner!
RATS, RAAATTTS have been procreasti procrat trying to sort out a name and finally came up with "Ritzy" ;D then I checked the thread - Geoff and Jude beat me to it - sort of "The Ritz" - a bit close me thinks - back to the drawing board
We have spoken about this before - the "OLD" guy has "the" affliction and even though he has made one very good attempt to shake it off (buying a Sunny) ;D ;D he had slipped back into the quagmire of rot and decay, to say nothing of the type of caravan he has immersed himself with. ;D ;D It is simply not good Karma to harass this poor OLD gentleman. Leave him be because we all know it wasn't the caravan that was called "fugly". He can be vicious - just look what happened to that gracious little van when the truth came out. He has stated he is planning a "raid " on the Sunny get together Tread lightly my friend, ;D Hee hee hee hee Fibreglass devotee, tonyh

aarrhhh Reddddooooo said in a whining voice
Ya just spoilt my next lot of verbal diarrhea
Old? Some say " Grey hair not necessarily mean wisdom... sometimes it just means old age" ;D ;D
I was going to have a go at some more names like Lumbering around and Termite mound..... Now ya gone and spoilt the fun by gettin all serious an stuff ;D
As I have stated long ago you have single handedly saved more fibreglass vans than anyone else on this forum...... You seem to have a nose for bargains and caravans Is your head getting bigger?...... can't get through the caravan door? My plan is working..... why don't they have evil smiley faces
Back to the jibs....
Tonyh Your right I forgot myself there for a moment even the criminally insane need to have some respite..... Sadly he seems to be a little confused (a problem with the elderly ;D ) can't make up his mind should I have fibre or a woody ;D So he has both ..... periodically. Dem little blu pills work wonders I'm told
Hey he has even had the good sense to send some bondies to heaven or hell depending on the size of the bondfire..... notice bond fire.... eeehhh eeehh? Your right too early in the morning for bad puns
For the record.... ALL VINTAGE CARAVANS ARE WORTH LOOKING AT ...... RESTORE THE RESTORABLE ..... LOVE THE ADORABLE AND RECYCLE THE DEPLORABLE....
The mock conflict on this forum is good for a laugh and keeps the interest happening .... GGGGOOOOO RRRREEEEEDDDDOOO!!!!!
Bad taste joke: Why do they give old men in nursing homes Viagra? Stops them falling out of bed in the morning ;D ;D ;D
