Zippos come from near Newbury - I've been at the test station at the same time as some of them and it smells like a chip shop in the test hall after they have gone through :D

The Routeman has me gagging, I loved em' I used to often pilot 1 of the last 3 Routeman tippers ever sold, the Boss bought all 3, I would make a stab at the year around 1980-1982 ish (might be earlier?), the common power unit in the 8 leggers was the Leyland 680 power plus hooked up to the AEC 6 speed overdrive box, they were a blinding set of wheels in their day, the last of the bunch had 280 Roller's poking stuff through a David Brown box, the proper tipper chassis had the single spring back ends, there was a standard chassis with the 4 spring set up, the C'o I was working for had 23 of em' plus a few left hook Maggies fitted with V10 motors, these were real power house's but the Scammell's used to earn me a good dollar, I used to get paid £3 a load doing between 24 and 28 loads a day, this was some heavy sheckels at the time, the Maggie's had some fare pigs of head bolts, great long fat things with I think ??? 13mm headed hexagons on the top of them,the torque and twist was hellish tight causing plenty of knackered sockets, but the V10 would set those wheels flying, anyhow I real loved to see the square eyed Scammell well done tim for your post :D :D

And a few from this years Bakewell Showground Spectacular; the Circus TM looked awesome I would guess ex-military with a 10 litre Cummins in it?
The Boxer with the identity crisis was also nice to see and rare these days as the proverbial rocking horse doo doo.
