Another H Van in Basingstoke (although it has the same colour scheme of the Ice Cream H Van in Reading. It isn't the same; this one has a Perspex dome (must be hot in there in warm weather!);

This was another nice surprise spotting for me but not a "a full 51 points" one :wink: since I've been using my locational benefits. This lovely Café is in Savonlinna (Google search) and we were visiting this small city with my family.

The name Nestor might sound familiar for the ones who read/watched Tintin :)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nestor_%28comics%29" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; - "Nestor is a fictional character in The Adventures of Tintin, the comics series by Belgian cartoonist Hergé. He is the long-suffering butler of Marlinspike Hall.

Nestor is the epitome of a butler (or, in French, majordome) of French society. Noble, loyal, always the domestic servant, Nestor serves his master Captain Haddock and any house guests such as Tintin, Professor Calculus, or Bianca Castafiore.

I was so much "taken" by this beautiful HY that I didn't even remember to check the other green one which is partially seen in the first pic. Does anybody recognise the brand/model of it?

Very nice H-Van Spot! Not sure if you came across the "TinTin" phase of the whatsthisthen? thread.

Found this site which has a comprehensive pictoral catalogue of all cars featured in TinTin

I wonder if those are a couple of "Trailer" Hvans, probably a more reliable option for the Street food entrepreneur.

Just seen a post on the Facebook CCC Group page to say the Yapp H Van has recently suffered the theft of some vital parts whilst parked in its usual spot in a layby near Mere on the A303. :evil: :cry:

The pictures shows the front end is missing...

Very awful :evil:
