As the 43rd Australian van nationals here in Barmera comes to a close would like to thank each and every vanner, each club, our nationals committee and all the sponsors who made our event what it was. Spoilt with perfect weather and perfect venue the 43rd was definately everything and more than we could have hoped for. Two years in the making it successful in every way. Thanks guys and girls, you rock!
As Midnight Express heads back to the museum, glad we had that chance to share her with everyone.
