Vintage pictures.

 So another area of the world where J types ended up.
 A 1988 picture of the Bunshi's ice cream van, glad to say its still around.
Taken many year ago in Devon, now hiding up in Glasgow, has been hiding for about 6 years now. Thats the problem when you have more than on J type, you cannot drive more than one at a time.

Update information on the recently found van in Essex.

 As spotted.
Period picture of another Tyresoles van. This image kindly supplied by the J type register, many thanks, H.P.
 Tyresoles are still about and still doing remoulds and other rubber items in the Far east.





Funny old world, seems the J type vans in Australia Facebook site are getting some grill chrome strips and centre bars made up. They are going to be made in the UK, so yet again we will be exporting items to down under. Lets hope some of these will be for sale in the UK, anyone seen an advert for them yet?
