Here are some pictures of my car ( RETRO 1) and my van ( DINER 2)
The van is a 1957 Castle caravan which I fully restored. It is only
9 foot long and the weight was reduced in the reconstruction so the PT
could tow it once it was loaded. The inside is done up in an America
Diner style with Coca-cola and Betty Boop as the main item. It took 6
months and about 2000 hours of labour.






The full story on the restoration of the van can be checked out at

I think it\'s time I had a visit with my Aunty Peg. I\'m sure her little van has been sitting in the carport for at least 30 years.
