The Historic Commercial Vehicle Club (HCVC) held their Display Day at Sandown Racecource on Sunday, November 18 2012. Here are some of the trucks - in this post you will see the English and European ones and an Australian truck and a Canadian one. To see the Internationals and Kenworths, click here.

Stan Hamilton's Maple Leaf - technically not either European or English, but Canadian, so as it is part of the Commonwealth, I have put it here.
We didn't bring any trucks this year as John had to go into hospital in the afternoon, so our 1418 Benz wasn't there, however I am pleased to report that the show wasn't a Benz-free event. Graham Young's 1424 is above and Eric Shingle's 1418 is below.
Three more Benzs - one above and two below.
A Scammell, above and a Scania, below.
Brian Dawe's Thornycroft featured on the Display day badge, so here are two shots of it.
Here's a few Volvos. Ours had to stay home in the shed, so I was pleased to see some other Volvos of diaplay.
