1919 motor convoy.

Recommended Posts

Jarrod,

Thanks for posting, I hadn't seen that before though I did know of the convoy. A great selection of vehicles.

It’s hard to imagine that the vehicles we preserve today were once workhorses that were used in extreme conditions and driven like we would a modern day Ford Transit.

Yes it is hard to imagine. I wonder how many Transits will be still around in 100 years?

Thanks. It was a remarkable journey. The MVPA recreated it with modern and a WW1 Dodge which i understand completed the trip without ay problems.

There are a fair few that are 50 years old. 

In 1955 the student union I would later join took on a 40 year old fire engine. When I joined it was 70 years old and the transit vans were fairly new. Now the fire engine is 100 years old and those union minibuses would be getting on for 40 years old (if they still existed)

Time just keeps happening. 

(numbers for illustration only,  some rounding has taken place)
