nounAustralian /NZ & South African
A small van, especially one without windows and passenger seats.
- Like a faithful blue heeler, who waits patiently for his surfer-master in the front seat of the panel van, the car remains an attribute of Aussie masculinity.
- The back of a panel van folded domestic space into the space and freedoms of automobility.
- The plan is in full swing to have bought a panel van by August at the latest, preferably more like June, so I can flee north for the winter and spend some time travelling Oz in a car like every good Aussie should.
