The Historic Commercial Vehicle Club (HCVC) held their Display Day at Sandown Racecource on Sunday, November 24 2013. Here are some of the trucks - in this post we will start with the Diamond Ts and continue through the alphabet to Internationals. If you want to see Atkinsons to Commers, then click here. If you want to see Kenworths to a Yorkshire Steam truck then click here. The weather was a bit overcast and rainy, so some of the photos are a bit ordinary.
This is the Critter, owned by Ian Castles - it's apparently a hybrid or a bitser. Pretty impressive.
Stephen Corstorphan's 1957 Diamond T
Des Walker's Diamond T timber jinker
Fred Love's newly restored Diamond T

Bob Lee's 1937 Diamond T. We love this truck.

We are into the Fords now
Richard Christie's Ford next to Brian Dawe's Dodge.
More Fords - mainly small commercial vehicles. The one, above, is done up as a Ferguson Plarre bakery delivery van. Ferguson Bakers began in 1901 and Plarre Bakers in 1911 and they merged in 1980.
One of the great things about this show is that you see a whole range of commercial vehicles on display. The car below is a Ford Escort.
Russell Marshall, HCVC President, displayed his 1941 Ford.
Stephen Corstorphan's Ford
This is a Ford of some description - it belongs to The Bark King lads - Jeff and Robert Johnston

We think these are both Fords
Joe Beaumont's 1942 Ford
G.M.C - blue one
