Northern Soul White Camper Van With Trailer

Posted

Was driving to Loughborough and to work this morning. Got behind a while camper type van towing a trailer. The trailer had a bull dogs head design on it and the spare wheel cover on the camper van had northern soul and the famous fist design on it. The bonnnet of the camper van has a union jack on it.

 

Anyone know who it belongs to - just curious to know if I know them from SS or elsewhere. I didn't recognise the driver.

So it was YOU! that was stalking me on the Loughborough road this morning while I was driving in my white camper van and trailer  :ohmy: 

 

All that swerving around, pulling alongside and hand gestures really freaked me out - thought you were a road-rager!

 

I called the old bill and gave them your reg number - so they may be paying you a visit - sorry  :(

Is that a joke Richard?

 

That's not me you're referring to if it isn't a joke - I just followed behind you for a bit trying to read the smaller writing on the left side back of the camper van.  What does  that say - I could read "minute" and maybe "holiday"?

 

I can assure you that I was most courteous in my driving. I wouldn't road rage a fellow souler!  :no:

You bugger! :shades:

 

Is it your van though? I would have thought you would have had the Saint Andrews Cross on your bumper if it was yours. It's a nice van.

Did the Van have Irish plates Pete?, maybe they were on a mission to bring soul to the masses....

I've been driving that route to work for ten years and have never seen it before so logic would suggest it's someone new to the area or they were travelling somewhere from home. We can rule out a scottish fellow from Notts. :D

Perhaps they were headed off for a weekender somewhere?

I suspect so Steve. A decent bit of kit it was too. My mate Terry from Lincolnshire has a camper van - but it wasn't him or his van. Terry's van is much more undesirable - mm, so is Terry for that matter. :lol:

 

Pretty sure I didn't recognise the driver as I over took.

It could have just been someone who wanted a nice wheel cover to go with his collection of Northern Soul coasters and Frank Wilson clock

I remember when we went down to the Rocket once we parked up behind this camper van and it has this "Northern soul is a way of life" transparent sticky thing in the back window :rolleyes:. It was rocking from side to side, ordinarily you'd think "bonking", but in this case I think the occupants were dancing in their kitchenette. :ohmy:
