    This is something i knew of and must have been great back in the day, i think this dates back to the early 80's, Commer walk through converted to a motor home powered by a Perkins diesel.

    I think I have said before that my dad drove a couple of Commer walk through vans that were converted to library vans for East Riding Council in the mid 60's / 70's. I will scan a couple of pictures in the morning.

    He passed away in March, I now have all the old photos including an album that was made for his retirement which I know has photos of several of the vans he drove, some during service and I think some of them after conversion to horse boxes (?) I will see what I can find tomorrow.

    I always wanted one of these. All my mates had them but I never managed a proper one. Got one now and about 3 in bits. It’s been a slow restoration (like they all are) and one day I’ll get it going...

    My neighbor has a panter kallista with a ford escort MK1 1.6 engine and can't remember which carburettor it has on
    Next home there's a guy who has a Fiat 500 ,600,600 multipla, Balilla, lancia beta Montecarlo.
    Another guy has a Lancia Delta HF (actually the exact one I've use for my avatar image) and a Lancia Fulvia.
    Another one has an Alfa Romeo junior GT
    Another one has an Alfetta
    My ex neighbor had a Fiat Uno Turbo aka "la bara" translated in "the coffin"
    A day while working in Cagliari I've seen a Matra Baghera .
    other two guys (one is a friend of mine) have both a Volkswagen transporter T2 .
    A man I worked for (now he's dead) had a Jaguar with a V12 engine
    A woman who lives near home has a Fiat 126.
    A friend of mine has two or three Piaggio Vespa and an Ape
    A Friend of my father has various Benelli race bikes (some of them build by my father when he was 14 ), an old KTM White Red and Blue ,a BMW M3 ,two Fiat 595 and 695
    There was a guy who had a Fiat 1100

    I should check in the phone I might have some pictures but I'm not sure
