Well after a 72 hr journey aboard a car carrier from Queensland our little J’Van has finally arrived. Axel Olleroch of VCDC in Rydalmere has welcomed our ‘Li’l Girl’ and is champing-at-the-bit to get started. Specializing in vehicle restoration Axel has given us an undertaking that we won’t be disappointed with the finished product… Here’s some more images of of her arrival and where she’ll live for the next few weeks… Stayed tuned for Part 4… coming soon.

…and so it begins…’Operation J’Van’ – Part 2: The Find!
After a long and exhaustive search, encompassing all corners of our great continent and included many an encounter with some ‘too-far-gone’ rust-buckets, Yellow Express has found a J’Van worthy of restoration. Queensland was where this little fellow called home and while it was shown lots of restoration love by its owner, he was not able to complete the job. We hope he will be pleased with our finished product

Morris J Type Vans

Morris J-type Vans used by Yellow Express on 1950s

Morris J-type vans were a common sight on Australian roads in the 1950’s and 60’s.  Yellow Express had a fleet of these vehicles to service our vast customer base but with the passing of time, these were replaced with more modern vehicles.

In 2012 began a search that would bring one of these classic commercial vans back into the fleet… watch this space…

We started our “Win an iPad2” Competition on our Facebook page back in May, and we were overwhelmed by the participation and well thought out responses, maybe even a few romances blooming.

 

The competition was to tell us in 25 words or less what you would get us to do, so you can continue to enjoy your life.

 

When it ended in October, we had over 2500 participants to choose from. It was difficult to select only one winner, but after much thought and consideration we decided on an entry by Laura Davies:

 

Something that I must confess…
while moving house I tend to stress.
Who can help me with this mess?
The jobs done with Yellow Express!

 

After finding a friend of hers had already entered our competition on our Facebook page, Laura decided to enter as well. Continue Reading

84_dedion

This is reported to be the world’s oldest car. It is a 1884 de Dion Bouton et Treardoux dos-a-dos steam runabout called La Marquise and has a top speed of 60 km/h and runs on coal, wood and paper. Its steam powered engine will give you enough range for 30 km trip. It is going up for auction on the 6th of October and if you are interested it will set you back about $2 million! Remember this story when the dealer offers you $500 for your old bomb… it could be priceless in 100 years or so.
