Two surviving -- ugly things!

Here's the other survivor:

https://c1.staticflickr.com/8/7528/15064...Quest   WNT502Y by Alan Drake, on Flickr

 

The set forward cab caused problems with axle loadings and the chassis' apparently cracked regularly

 

Whortons brought both of them to Gaydon this year. Note the concrete block chained to the back - essential to stop it faceplanting apparently. The offside rear light bracket is now broken - the chap leaned on it and snapped it clean off as it was so rotten!

 

Here they are with a bonus Matador for those who like that sort of thing

That Quest 80 in the last pic was the one I saw, and it was on a low loader being dragged by the  FTF next to it.

 

There may have been a small Protein Shake happen at that point.

That FTF and a yellow Foden seem to be the ones responsible for dragging the Quests around. I can well imagine a certain type of accident happening at such a sight :-D

That black F88 in Quicksilver's post is proper Mad Max!    I saw it do a full pull on the tractor sled at Berwick St John last September - awesome.   It often turns up with a showman's living wagon of around the early Sixties era.

Now that brings back memories! I remember Shanks & McEwan operating out of the landfill site at the old brickworks in Calvert when I was but a lad. There were always several wendy house Volvos lined up at their open days and sometimes I got to sit in one :-D
