I like Casino Blue (if that is what it is) on HQ vans, really suits them.

Ah yes Gene, crossed memory cells! It is Azure blue that I like, Casino is a later colour. I reckon it is close to the best HQ colour on a van. Even nicer than Orchid.

It would have looked twice as good with redwalls, instead of those white lettered tyres IMHO !

I agree with the Casino Blue sentiments, but I actually like the Belmont more.

Dunno if I'd own one but that Orchid HQ van with the Prem front doesn't half stand out in the crowd!

If you got rid of the Prem/LS nose and HJ GTS spoiler, removed the white and found the nearest scrap tyre pile for the tyres it’d be OK.

Did the vents behind the door get dropped earlier during HQ or at model changeover to HJ?
