lets look at this somewhat logically..
there are 2000 odd members registered here, lets assume each has 1 van. This takes into account those who have sold theirs, or are waiting to find one to buy, factored against those who have multiple like Ben, Chris, Neil and Craig.
Now we can only assume that not EVERY bedford owner knows about Buga, so lets over estimate and say 50% of all owners are registered here.
Your 3000+ is easily achieved Ben ;)

Let's try it this way -

We've got two (not counting the donor van that will never see the road again)
Petrol head has two,
Craig(Obsession) has at least two  ;D
MaTTe has one
Dano's got two

That's nine, just add to the count with each post. If you want to get fancy about it we can just adjust the table below -

WA - 9
Vic -
SA -
Qld -
NT -
NSW -
ACT -

Kiwi Vans -

what is the definition of a van, ie does it need to be complete, or on wheels or road legal ...?
There are so many people out there who will tell you that you can't. What you've got to do is turn around and say "watch me"
