Holiday time is here.

I will be away for a few days so sorry if there is a delay in replying to your e-mails and questions.

The above van I mentioned two blog postings ago. The latest news is that via a friend of a friend, Quote "I have received a note from a contact at York in Western Australia and he knew of this J. He is going over soon to see if there is an ID on it. Will keep you posted."
Thanks for the news P.B.
Lets hope the chassis plate is still on the the panels in the back of the van. I also hope the owner can be tracked down, maybe he would sell it to me. I'm in need of another project.

Talking about projects my main problem is normally lack of time, money, parts or sometimes all three. My friends latest project has a different problem, unexpected guests in the drivers side glove box.
A nice wasps nest.

If your taking your J type to any rallies in the next few weeks, do tell me so I can mention it here. Another J type owner might then attend knowing another van or owner will be there. After all we love the rare Morris J type, world wide maybe 300 are still around. In Britain road worthy vehicles? I would say about 30 so we should get together as often as possible.
