Where are they now?

Post #1 by hair bear » Mon May 30, 2016 11:57 pm

Having a trawl through some old show pics, a question came up as to where do old show trucks go?
Four that seem to have vanished are the Western Star Lady Louise, used to belong to CDC in Suffolk. was around from about 1988 through to the early 90's

Another was Blondie's gullwing Scania

And what of Steve Murty's Skytrain Wheelie truck

and Projet?

Are they rotting in field somewhere? Broken for parts? Scrapped even?

Rob I'd hazard a guess that somebody will probably have a 'barn find' one day; a nice find too.

Definitely one of those things that once you've seen it - you've seen it, rather like the JCB GT. Anyone seen that lately?
