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
