Just got back from a day there. Very impressive WW1 lineup. Great to see your CB Duncan. Looked fantastic. Had a ride in the Saurer and took the AEC Y Type for a drive up the hill and back (thanks Seb for trusting me not to wreck it). Lots of interesting things to see and great to meet so many old friends. Will post some photos on my machine when I get home.

Please post as many pictures as you can, I can't make it down to the show but having seen 6 WW1 trucks together at our shows I look forward to seeing shots of 10+ trucks together.

 

Cheers Steve

Wow, who owns the Holt Tractor? I'd love to see one of those up close. Is it a visitor or is it in the UK permanently?

It is owned by Ron Harris and driven by Sam. It is up for sale if you would like to buy it? Over £100,000 I think.

Had a great time at the GDSF and was very impressed with the WW1 display. Had difficulty taking photos though. Too many distractions, poor light, dust and lots of MOPS getting in the way, but here are a few photos.

I really enjoyed driving Sebs AEC Y Type. Very trusting of him to let me have a go with my reputation of damaging other peoples vehicles. Very fast and powerful machine.

Interesting to see Les Warrens old Dennis which is now in WD green. Looks a lot nicer than before.

Wow, I'd love to but not sure a check down the back of the sofa will yield that much.
