J / JB Fleet...

I took the Van along to Sandown Racecourse today for the Historic Commercial vehicle display. Lots of other vans showed up. A rag tag lot but full of personality.  Interesting other vehicles were a Scamell, steam powered truck, little fruit and veg mover from Queen Vic market, Commer van (one owner) and a variety of WW2 trucks. Fun and interesting...

Private car show...

John and Annette Brook-Smith dropped in with their lovely van. We met up with an Austin Health bug-eye in a local reserve.  A nice collection, related and all from 1958-59.
