Classic Truck



This is a Bedford TJ Tipper from around 1967.

On New Years Day Taunton was invaded by literally hundreds of classic cars, some more classic than others (Sinclair C5 anyone?..... no, me neither!)
By the time I had got myself out of the house to go have a look they were all leaving! Inexcusable really as they were gathered no more than 500m away from my front door at the cattle market.

Never mind, I am sure they'll be back next year.

While I mention the cattle market; it was announced last week that it is to close in a years time and move to Bridgwater, about 20 miles north.
This will be more convenient for the farmers but a real shame for Taunton as there has been a market on that site for at least 1000 years.
I will definitely get some photos from the market before it closes.

That's unusual to see that around. Seems huge but still somehow beautiful compared to today's trucks.

Now THAT'S what I need to haul my boys in, to and from school! Think it has a built-in DVD player? They have to get their video fix or they're grumps!

Course I could just toss 'em and all their gear in the bed and be done with them--nothing like peace & quiet up front on all those trips, LOL!

Neato shot! =)
