Letters • YOUR VIEWS, COMMENTS AND RECOLLECTIONS…

THE COMPLETE PACKAGE • After it had spent 18 years hard at work, the owner of this rare 1979 DAF 2100 put it out to grass for 15 years before resurrecting it to show standard in 2017. Pip Dunn tells the story.

GOD’S OWN COUNTRY ROAD RUN • David Reed reports. October 4 2020

BLACKPOOL TOWER • Okay – it’s not the famous tower that has dominated the town’s seafront since 1891, but this little Guy Vixen tower wagon of 1956 vintage had its own role to play in keeping the town’s equally famous tram system going.

AULD DICK • Thornycroft lorries are now rare, and the opportunity to see one in the flesh is not to be missed. George Bell’s 1956 Swiftsure is a good example, and he’s owned it for over 30 years, as Bob Weir discovers…

JETTISONED JOWETTS • It’s not widely-known, but Jowett were well on the way to producing a stylish modern replacement for the Bradford van when vehicle production ceased in 1953. Mike Neale’s tells the story, and traces some surviving prototypes.

BMC’S HALF-TONNER • Peter Simpson presents a personal profile of BMC’s bigger car derived LCV of the 1960s, and ponders whether an opportunity was missed.
