  1. You are correct Steve, it is a threshing machine driven by an old Fordson Major. Pity they weren't actually demonstrating threshing, always guaranteed to draw a crowd.
  2. No doubt on his way to Llandudno for the vintage vehicle show at the Extravaganza
  3. Have you got shares in Halfords Tony? The perceived wisdom on here has always been to use a good quality 30 grade such as Morris's, that's what these engines were designed to use also modern manufacture is far superior to the wartime product. In your vehicles you can use what you want but who's going to pay if it all goes pear shaped?

  5. Sorry, I have put that very badly, Post War vehicles are very welcome. No SS vehicles or uniforms.
  6. Blind Veterans UK are hosting a D-Day 75th commemeration at their Llandudno site on 5th and 6th June and invite WW2 and Post War Allied and Axis vehicles, displays and reenactors to attend, (no SS). Camping (military tents only), hard standing for caravans and motor homes available from 4th June. Some expenses will be available as will complementary food and drink all day. WW2 includimg some D-Day veterans will be present on both days and schoolchildren will be guests on 5th June. On 6th June we will be conveying the veterans to the War Memorial on the promenade for a short ceremony where we will be meeting the public, following this we will convoy to Conwy to visit the area where parts of the Mulberry Harbours were built. Please contact me if you wish to participate 07789 192990
  7. Guilty as charged but I rarely go on there now as I sold my jimmy some years ago.
  8. If you join the CCKW forum you will have access to all the jimmy experts on there.
  9. They were 6x6 and you are correct in that they did split behind the cab. The front part was supported by a jockey wheel to assist loading into aircraft, fishplates were used to connect the two halves.
  10. The type of body fitted is totally irrelevant, until the vehicle is plated , tested and registered as a goods vehicle it is illegal to carry a load unless that load is a fixed part of the vehicle, End of story.
  11. Looks like the type of cab fitted for civi use in Europe post war.
