Theres some great looking trucks there that Bedford army truck looks tough Dad had one like that petrol and big singles he was driving thru the paddock on the farm and the front axle housing broke the left hand front was under the truck when he stopped he was only going slow as well with no load
Some mining company bought the truck they turned up with a new axle housing in there panel van and spent the day working on it before heading off to Perth WA straight from the farm

thanks for sharing the pictures

You're welcome.
Once wifey has processed her collection I'll post up some more up to date ones.
Next show is a new venue for them at Newbury at the end of May. I might get there as it's a good 100 miles closer to me than Peterborough but it's also grass time so could be busy.

That inter Lonestar is a wild looking bit of gear I dont think I will ever get used to looking at that I guess you either love it or hate it or maybe just get left a bit speechless each time you see it like me

This Lonestar belongs to Mick Gould, they have two as wreckers. The first time I saw it was in a queue of traffic - it came up behind me and it was one of those weird moments where no matter how long you stared into the mirror it looked to be sort of 'fisheye' distorted and you just start to think you need to get your eyes tested!
