There must be some more terrible names out there, and some good ones as well.

Yes its a bike, but I always thought the Velocette Venom was a good name :)

Do these web images count?

Mind you, X Men: Days of Future Past has a lot of Citroens in if, if this webpage is anything to go by;

James,

I think Big Chief I-Spy would have had to consumed this sort of quantity of beer to allow a spotter to get away with virtual H Van Spots.

Image

But an unusual or innovative spot is often looked on favourably.

So, a Polaroid of maybe the X-men movie with the aformentioned H-Van on screen, playing on a Philips TX1422 may do the trick particularly with some extraneous digits in the top corner of the shot just to prove the spotter was there a la Malcolm!

Welcome Claude.......I think your photobucket album in which the pictures are mus be set to private. My equipment doesn't show the images you have posted up.

.edit.....forget that they have just loaded up fine :) 50 points usually awarded for an H Van spot, but if one has appeared on you drive I guess you are in a different claassification and have taken the plunge and are now a proud owner.

Thats probably worth a Big chief I-spy bonus in my view how about a straight 100 to get you started!

So...from the number plate Claude has spent some time in Department 71 Saone-et-Loire, Burgundy

Image

So congratulations on taking the HVAN onwership plunge. Normally I would offer a welcoming beer, but maybe Cremant de Bourgogne is more appropriate to celebrate Claude's arrival on your driveway!

Yes there's a definite 50 points on offer.

Maybe Mrs Northern Mike would like a glass of this.....an English sparkling wine produced not too far away....

Image

Looks pretty good to me, although at £24 a bottle-this HVan spotting could turn into an expensive pastime!

I can, almost literally , throw a stone onto the Stanlake estate from my driveway.... It's probably 200 yards away as the crow flies.

Thanks for the spot Tecar, looks like its moved at least 300 miles, so give yourself 50 points.

I'll need to reflect a while and select a suitable reward for my own observation skills :)
