Hi
I suspect that the E38W/Bond picture was taken during the 1952 Preston Guild Trades Procession.

Ooo some nice pictures there Penman, looks like the same event. Interestingly there's a standard E83W van in one of the photos, also belonging to Sharps Commercials.

Two interesting b&w photos of a camper conversion, undertaken on a 1929 Ford Model AA in 1949 & photographed in Scotland, added to the images section today. The vehicle still survives amazingly.

The AA 'motorhome' is fascinating, however one thing puzzles me. The A and the AA had the petrol tank mounted on the scuttle with the filling cap centrally in front of the windscreen. The camper has its windscreen much further forward than original and that would make the tank and filler inside the cab.

Either the occupants put up with petrol fumes in their home, or else a separate tank was fitted to the vehicle. That would also entail fitting a fuel pump as the A and AA had their tank arranged to gravity feed the carby.

Hi
I love the idea of a bike where the pedals aren't set at 180 degrees, you often see LH drive M/cycle combinations these days, and I think there is more than one fault on the caravan.
Wheels to far back and tow bar A frame too short preventing tight turns

Theres something about old coaches that really brings on the nostalgia, looking at these pics you can just imagine what fun those day trips were.

Added to the reference section, an application chart dating to 1959 for AC spark plugs, which also includes a plug fault diagnosis section.
