Sydney Carnivale 2013: 5 J-type vans on displaySydney Carnivale 2013: 5 J-type vans on display

Australian J get-together in a few days time!

Peter Bateman writes from Australia:
There will be the largest assembly of road going Morris J type vans in Australia for many years at the CARnivale Car display to be held on Macquarie street Sydney on January 26, 2013. The vans will be beside the Hyde Park Barracks facing Hyde Park. All welcome & make yourselves known.
Also of interest was a visit to Novgorod, syd’sKnee last weekend by JB 43247’s custodians, Andrew Trollope and Susan Hunt. Mr Cholmondeley’s minder was having a working bee and Andrew was pleased to see JB 43570 arrive for a show & tell then Kelly Ashton arrived with his took kit and multimeter. After spending a very hot afternoon at Novgorod J HQ he went off to Dee Why with Kelly to see the V8 J and the restoration J which is Kelly’s reason d’etre at the moment. On the Sunday Andrew & Susan revisited Novgorod for a nibble and a “tour of the Syd’sKnee sights”. First was a look see at one of the winning Appliances vans then on to Watsons Bay, via Bondi beach, to see the Doyles van.
A pleasant time was had by all.
Also of note is that Andrew & Susan have their tickets for the journey to Birmingham for the 65th.
By contrast we include a photo sent by Roland Turner of his van, which he has been using to get to and from work, in the snow. And just when we thought it was thawing, it’s started snowing again!

Happy New Year!

Wishing J-type owners and enthusiasts worldwide a Happy and Prosperous New Year.
