I think you win, already Esper!

Drabble will be dribbling

Team Throbnozzle are jealous of the voluminous interior capacity, if not the travelling speed!

Looks fine to me Gordon. A quick trip through the car wash and job's a good'un.

I suspect that Esper will win in the elegance stakes but I have seen a few snaps with what looky like some nicely tended vehicles, noticeably a BRM transporter.

The Tyrrell truck from the 70's is still around and is often displayed at the larger meetings. However it was never really the prettiest of things and has been maintained to retain its orginal patina.

Seen some pretty good trucks done by germans last year at the nurburgring , Nice Mercedes (yes I can write that and few years back there was a Healey racer with a gorgeous bus. we should have those here!!! Doesnt Simon Hadfield have a nice old lorry as well?
The speed Zef...nah...mine was made for the lowlands with a 5 speed gearbox. Have to go by Aachen to Spa to avoid the first steep climb at Liege So red Zef Trannies will have the speed record!!!
Gordon sets the pace , thats a good one!

We would have to include the Ecurie Ecosse transporter


Not particularly beautiful, but Allan Moffat's transporter was the first purpose-built one in Australia and done very well.

The Ecurie Ecosse Transporter is now owned by Dick Skipworth,lovely old bus! Everything in it was restored,apparently you need to allow a little extra time to drive it down to Le Mans!

fugly but fast the Mercedes

Theres a guy somewhere who's restored a MK1 Transit with the latest running gear.

200 BHP 300lbft 4WD in a MK1 LWB twin wheel should do the trick nicely

Esper very pretty. Terry Van der Zee who runs my Turner and Merlyn has a converted bus El Sid - it is not as pretty as your lorry but my goodness can it shift!

I love the period tenders and of course the Tyrell lorry which is now owned by a American collector and the Ecurrie Ecosse are very fine examples...

As has been mentioned already some ten tenthers have some special tenders...

We have an old trannie down the road from me, she often goes into the gay pub on the green, The Load of Hay.
