Vanditos hosts its first ever Van Jam
This weekend, The Van Insurer was thrilled to join Vanditos for their first ever ‘All-American Van Meeting’.
It was the first time that we’d met the Vanditos team, so it was great to learn more about their passion for 60s, 70s and 80s American vans and meet a few of their growing fanbase.
The picturesque village of Warmington in Banbury Oxfordshire played host to the meet, organised by Vanditos clan members Clive Nutley and Griff Woolley. Vanditos’ Van Jam did a great job of staging a classic ‘party in the park’ vibe, of course with an American twist.
There was an incredible array of American vans on display but that was just one element of the weekend, there really was something to suit everyone. Saturday night showcased a genuine party vibe, with DJs and an atmosphere to rival any American van meeting in the USA itself.
A nice touch for the weekenders was the addition of a selection of homemade beers and ciders, made and supplied by the event organisers themselves – for free!
Sunday was the Show and Shine, a classic element of any van event. However, for Vanditos, it really was something special. We followed the judging panel around to see exactly what they were looking for; among the awards were prizes for the ‘Deepest Shag Pile Carpet’ and the ‘Best Sticker’.
It really was a fantastic weekend, and we’d like to say a special well done to everyone involved in organising the event – we can’t wait to see what they have planned for 2020.
With our finger firmly on the pulse of all things van, we’ve seen the popularity of American vans increase over the years, so we recently teamed up with A-Plan to provide specialist van insurance for these unique vehicles.
