Mark and Sally's Van Chaud and the Red Arrows
1965 HY72 ex Service Departmental D’Incendie et de Secours D’Eure et Loir
Taken outside the fire station in Bonneval near Chartres where it used to be based.
Well the H Van spotters have been out again, my brother Paul and his fianceè Elaine spotted these two van's in Notcuts garden centre in Westbridgeford Nottingham, one selling fish and chips and the other selling your Sunday roast. I bet when they first made the H van in France they never would've thought that it would be used to sell roast beef in a garden centre in Nottingham. On second thoughts I'm sure the french would think what else could the English sell. Roast beef or Fish and Chips. If you are the owners of the vans and are some how reading this then please send me details of the vans and how you come about to be in a garden centre. I'm still surprised how versatile the Hy is. Well Happy New Year to all the H Vanners out there keep sending me any stuff about your Vans.
Could this be the best Hy in the world?
Colin Hughes bought this Hy 11 years ago, and it has taken 2 years to restore.
You must agree what a fantastic job he has made of it, I haven't seen better.
Its time we had a cool pictures board.. send in your pictures of your H Van and get them on the front page....
