Vintage pictures.

 So another area of the world where J types ended up.
 A 1988 picture of the Bunshi's ice cream van, glad to say its still around.
Taken many year ago in Devon, now hiding up in Glasgow, has been hiding for about 6 years now. Thats the problem when you have more than one J type, you cannot drive more than one at a time. Too many people buying them for investments it seems.
