‘My clas­sic is my work van'

1986 Citroën Dyane Van Mark Saun­ders, Le­ices­ter

Practical Classics (UK) - - YOUR CARS -

I've owned my Dyane for five months and it's a work­ing ve­hi­cle. I bought it as a pro­mo­tional ve­hi­cle when I started up my own busi­ness in Novem­ber 2017. The thing is, it's so much more than that… I can ac­tu­ally use it, too.

I drive it ev­ery day – it puts in a proper shift and doesn’t let me down. It's eco­nom­i­cal, too, and gets my com­pany no­ticed. You don’t see many on the road any more, so peo­ple stop and look. These vans are huge fun, so peo­ple come up and talk to you. I’ve got a few clas­sics to keep me en­ter­tained, but this is my reg­u­lar.

I’ve done noth­ing to it apart from buy some tyres. Work, rest (you can sleep in it!) and play mixed, it is a Mars bar car… I love it.

Mark's Dyane does a full shift ev­ery day.
