Scott has saved this one from the bedford graveyard in the sky and is now starting on the long hard road to bring it back to being a drive-able van. it was last seen on the Custom Van show circuit in the '90s and was lost for a few years but will be getting a new lease on life. All the bodywork on the van is steel and was built in timaru back in the heyday of vanning. Scott has put a RB30e from a VL Commodore into it, that was removed from his old cf shell and is nearly ready for wiring

Kane's Van has had the club working bee treatment where we all turned up drank his beer n helped him strip his van back to bare nothings n begin the much needed repairs as well changes that Kane wanted or liked the though of. The addition of a new front spoiler, ford xc falcon grille new rear wing and a lick of primer at this point has the van looking pretty good so far. with more mods to come in the future this will be one classy van once its done.
this van has been around for awhile, it was originally built in Dunedin in the 80 and was known as Lightning Lady, at that point she was black with pink graphics with a huge 350 on the back panel. since owning this van Kane has made many changes, improvements and continues to do so
Much thanks to the Guys n Gals that helped out n put in the hard yards and late nights to get alot done to the van

This is a shortened CF Bedford van that is former show van built in the mid 80's and retired in the 2000's due to the set in of some rust in critical points that rendered in unroadworthy and was destined for the great van graveyard in the sky, but luckily it has made it into the hands of the made it into the Club's Three Amigos and though it is far off being a driveable van again, the three Amigos are going to give it a new lease on life as a trailer for the Club
