THE A-Team’s iconic van was at Blenheim Palace in Woodstock on Sunday as part of a feast of classic American vehicles.

More than 400 cars, motorbikes, military vehicles and vans, built in the United States as far back as the 1920s, visited the palace for the 49th Rally of the Giants.

Taj Majid, 42, from Dudley in the West Midlands, brought his 1985 GMC Vandura van that he hires out after modelling it on the A-Team’s iconic vehicle.

He said: “It was basically a Transit van for the Yanks and The A-Team made it famous by painting it and driving it around.

“It was my first time at the palace and I had a great day, with an endless stream of people coming to look inside the van and take photos.

“I’ve always been into American cars and this was probably one of the biggest and best shows I’ve ever been to.”

Other vehicles included Chevrolets, Cadillacs and a replica of the Bluesmobile, a 1974 Dodge Monaco used in the 1980 film The Blues Brothers that was designed as a police car.
