Reminds me of John Wright's yard in Holbeach St Johns, or at least how it was a few years ago.

Lived in NZ from 1973 - 1978, had an F type Victor among other cars while I was there but no Viva - too new and too expensive there and then. Nobody ever seems to mention the HB panel vans that were sold in NZ - station wagons (sorry, "estate cars") without rear side windows. I remember seeing one in the livery of a fire service, and others around Wellington waterfront. Any NZ forum persons have any information?

No - photos cost a lot in NZ then and you didn't always have a camera to hand like you do now.
