The 2017 Australian Van Nationals Show ‘n Shine were held at Port Fairy at Easter. As He Who Eats All of Leftovers and I were passing through town on Easter Sunday, we decided to stop and have a look.

Everybody loves Scooby Doo and The Mystery Machine.

Quite a few entrants presented their vehicles with a theme for the Show ‘n Shine.

Come inside….

Quite a few of the vans had amazing artwork. The car below had a movie theme.

Before we arrived at Port Fairy, He Who Eats All of Our Leftovers was telling me about a radio bumper sticker competition held during his childhood where the prizes were Bedford vans – the Freedom Machine and the Easy Roller. We looked everywhere for them hoping they would be there, but sadly they were not.

Hopefully they will turn up again in the future.
