Great pics,the 2nd one reminds me of my 1st driving job in about 1987.I had a facelifted Mk 2 Transit LWB petrol(B169 MPG) & an Iveco Daily(C reg)petrol as well.Much preferred the Transit,but the engine died & it was sold.After a while,the Iveco was replaced by a late Bedford CF which I absolutely hated :x

Nope, the one after that :wink: . They are all family, the top one we've had the longest, she was driven by Richard Hammond in Topgear's Transit 40th Special. She was in her natural accessories then (like the spoiler).

The only Transit I've driven that I didn't like was an early Mk 3 Luton.It was the non-turbo diesel,& had the 4-speed overdrive gearbox.It was so slow that I thought there was something seriously wrong with it :?

That CF is very sad, an old mate of mine has one of his own creation with military axles and gullwing side door slowly decaying in his back garden.

How easy is it to bring kit back from Cyprus. I only ask as bringing that Bedford CA back could probably make someone a fair amount richer

Apparently it's not that difficult, as long as the vehicle has MoT. Don't ask me why; this is the local rule so we have to work within it. The Bedford in question has been sitting where it is for rather a long time, so it's likely to need a fair bit of work just to get to MoT level. Work which would have to be done here. It's also lost all its fittings from inside. Suddenly it's becoming expensive, you see............

Also, most Cypriots have no idea what their old shite is worth and make up numbers as they see fit. Always larger numbers than you or I would, by some margin!

Screw the Bedford, look at that Leyland (Terrier?) it's class!

Rootes: loving those truck pictures. A Mack truck like the one you photographed is high on my 'would like to own one one day' list.

Looks too big for a Terrier, possibly a Boxer,or even a Mastiff.
