Where are they now?

Recommended Posts

Recently uploaded to YouTube, the Top Gear piece about the 1987 Brighton Run. 


I remember the Lancre roadsweeper from back then, but haven't seen it for a while. 

Ditto the Chocolate Express bus. 

The 1916 fire engine is still around, you can see a very youthful me at 209 seconds in.

Googling the reg number, the roadsweeper was sold at auction. Can't see the sale date though but possibly 2015: http://classiccars.brightwells.com/viewdetails.php?id=5461

Found a picture of it from 2018 here:

There is a chocolate express bus in the London Transport museum collection - not sure if it's the same one though?: https://www.ianvisits.co.uk/blog/2017/11/05/see-the-pirate-chocolate-express-bus/
