    Nope...not a member.

    Hoping to have it up and on the road by next summer and one of the very first trips will be from Leicester to York.;) And hopefully back again!

    Excellent. I have a lot of emotional investment in Yssy, it'll be lovely to see her back on the road.
     
  5. That's three of us on the forum then, I've got the biggest (and rustiest) H van in the world parked in the yard at work.

    I need a left hand front wing for mine and then I can finish the bodywork. Mechanically it's good apart from needing the brakes overhauling

    Out of idle interest, I just googled H Van to see what all the fuss is about...

    WOW! those are things of beauty!
    Let's face it, the Frnch probably deserve all the stick they get (;)), but when it comes to beautiful car design, they had something going on..Citroen DS is also something I'd happily drool over :smile:

    If you get a DS, can I come and drool over it too?

    The highest value so far recorded for a Citroën DS was a silver 1973 DS 23 IE 'Decapotable,' having covered only 100,000 km, that sold for EUR €176,250 (USD $209,738) at Christie's Retromobile in February 2006.

    £100,000 for a 34year old car - bloomin 'eck ;)
