  1. Hi there. New to the forum. Don't know if I'm wise but I am interested in purchasing a Humber Pig and/or a Saracen. Always been fascinated in them since seeing them on the streets of N.I. in my younger days. I've a keen interest in the iconic vehicles used during the Troubles. Not sure if I'd prefer the Pig MK2 for the proper N.I. 'look' or the less hassle that comes with a MK1 (so I'm led to believe!). I wouldn't want it as an ornament, definitely would have it in use, personal and commercial. A few questions as many of the posts with good info are nearly 10 years old now :- Do these vehicles come up for sale often and what sort of price these days for a good refurbished one? Are there any experts on here could give me any advice? MK1/MK2? Possible to get the MK2 look on a MK1? With the barricade buster? Would they be reliable enough to use these days? Are parts easily obtainable? Are they easy to work at? How hard are they to maintain (basics i.e. Oil, grease etc) by someone who doesn't have much experience? Would a general heavy mechanic/fitter be able to work their way round these machines? Is a Saracen just completely out of the question in 2017? Doing my research, it seems Saracens are a bit of a nightmare with possibly the Pig a tad more manageable? Thanks in advance.
  2. I was browsing through the IWM archives and stumbled upon these. Not many registration numbers visible, just one partial for a Humber ___K08, and Saracen 83BA31, __BA09, 82BA85, 82BA87 and Land Rover 04DM24 . Still, thought it might be of interest. The depot still exists, although in much modified form. Although captioned as Takali, the area is in Attard, 2 miles south of Takali. Anyone with a better zoom can possibly drag up some more Humber registrations https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/205098903 https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/205098903 https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/205098877 https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/205098900 https://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/205098733
  3. hello all. We own a small private museum in the north island of New Zealand with a verity of exhibits ranging from vintage motorcycles to live steam traction engines. I'm the son of the founders Roger and Linda Crowden from Somerset Uk who enumerated to NZ in the late 80's to start the museum. Im currently in Wingrave UK getting two Humber pigs going ready for export to NZ for the museum. We've owned them for a number of years and now the time has come to ship them to their new home. If anyone can off advise on pig gremerlins please advise me. I've got most of it covered and hope to have one of them fired up tomorrow for the first time. I'll update with photos and info on these two orange piglets at some point they haven't been started in 20years!!! Cheers Tor Crowden
