Well we've finally got round to naming our van. She is now Nellie, named after our lovely Staffie who we lost earlier this year.

ah good choice.:dog:


Mine is called Thumper - cos he was big and white (look for the rabbit shaped bottle opener by the door), ok he's now a yellow rabbit

Previous was Tiggurr cos of the URR numberplate (and the stripes)

I dont name bit of metal. & plastic
Just look after them and run them
Call them all kinds of words when they do not work as they should
Not repeatable In open Forum. You get the gist

Our Ford Camper was called Freda and this one is called Batmobile because the first meet we went to was the Halloween meet in November :wave:

Still to name the van, but recent vehicles:
Lemmy the Landrover 90 - old school heavy metal
Bane the Dodge Charger - cos its been the bane of our lives restoring the bugger
The Red Neck Rocket the Mitsi L200 - cos red necks drive em, and its very slow
And Overkill the 80 series Landcruiser - because its 4.2 diesel, straight six, lifted, big tyres, etc, etc - dead handy for the school run. :D

Our van is called Nelly, although it is Nelly 6 as all of our families self builds have been called Nelly after a toy elephant my Dad found and kept in his ambulance conversion in the 1970's. It has just rolled on from there with mine being the sixth self build. I have a pair of elephants my Mum knitted for the Vito as mascots!
