JuBilation at Doyles on the Beach!

9 working J-type vans drove to the iconic Doyles on the beach on Saturday.

Two Winning Appliances vans, in their new livery, Pipe Perfection’s Number 1 van, Sydney Packaging’s Holden-engined van, the Panania Automotive van, the amazing V8 rat rod owned by the Bellettes, Peter Bateman’s J/B and the recently-completed magnificent Yellow Express van joined Doyles’ own van for a wonderful display and custodian catch-up.

We were joined by Andrew Lynch and his two J van grilles, all the way from Orange, Central NSW.

Our heart-felt gratitude is extended to all the Doyles  family and their wonderful staff for hosting an unforgettable day.
