Australia Day 2017 and the annual CARnivale at Parramatta Park in Sydney’s west was the hub to showcase some of Australia’s interesting motor vehicles. Five of Sydney’s J van fleet were on display and as usual provided many smiles and a popular ‘selfie’ backdrop. Stories were told of J vans delivering milk in Canberra back in the fifties. We met an ex-Lucas employee who recalled as an apprentice, “bouncing around” in the back of a Lucas J van in the UK.  He now lives in Oz and travels in greater comfort.
