Samage's Spots - Ye gods! An update?! 30/10/07

Recommended Posts

Are those two trucks in the 9th pic from the top LIAZ's? Or are they just old Saviems? They look vaguely familiar, anyway...

WOW :shock: What a find Samage! Those look like Fiat/Ivecos to me Wuvvum :wink: The 'W' reg truck alongside is a DAF.The older wagons with missing grilles are AEC's dating from the late 50's to early 60's, and the crane is a real rarity called a 'Clansman' and based on an Albion Chieftain which is of the same vintage as the AEC's. Theres an old breakers yard near me who still use one of those cranes :D

The two trucks next to the DAF are Magirus Deutz's....mid-late '80's at a guess, Iveco bought them out just before it bought Ford Trucks, I remember the air-cooled V8 Magirus-cabbed Iveco was the first tractor unit sold in the UK to top the 500bhp mark, before even Scania could get it's iconic V8 past 450 horses. They rusted like you would not believe though.Glad BS6 has correctly identified that crane, i thought it was a Hydrocon but I was wronger than your mum in a thong :shock:

Thanks for clearing that up. Don't know why I thought they were LIAZ - what would a pair of LIAZ be doing in an English scrapyard? :oops: There's a chap near Great Yarmouth trying to sell a Magirus Deutz recovery truck at the moment, but it's the 7.5-tonne version with the Iveco Zeta-style cab. I was tempted, but he won't go below 500 squid and the clutch is fcuked, and I wouldn't have a clue how to do a clutch on something like that. I do like the noise those old air-cooled diesels make though - my second-favourite commercial engine sound after the two-stroke Commers.

What about Foden or Detroit diesel 'strokers'. one of the best sounding engines is a two stroke diesel 8)

I remember reading somwhere about some Welsh drivers back in the 60's who used to run up Blakeney Hill on the old A48 heading from Chepstow up to Gloucester in Foden 2-strokes.....they used to have a little wager on how many milk bottles they could shatter with the bellow from those mighty engines as they roared up the hill 8)

That is one nice Air-Portable Landy! IMHO they always look good with a civvy hard-top on them. I had a '74 with a late 2.5 petrol in it and Range-Rover diffs, would sit at 70-75 on the motorway all day if your ears (and wallet!) could stand it 8)

Faaaaaaaaaaaaaaarkinell, it's been a while! Well, I've returned from the ether, and I bring more classics/shonky stuff.

 

P6, one owner from new, variously faded panels:

Extremely dead MGB:

Capri on slotmags:

Minor - OK so it's a "popular classic", but it's faded all over and has moss on it. Whilst still in daily use. That warrants a place here, methinks!

Two-Cee-Vee. Again, bordering on popular, but what the hey:

Super clean Scimmy:

Beford CF pikeywagon:

And a classy old Beemer to finish. :D

That poor MGB owner, not only has somebody nicked his rear lights, but they've stuck gaffer tape over his house nameplate too. :lol:

:lol: I always blank out house/street names in my pics to protect the innocent. :D

Lovely! Still on it's (expensive and hard to find) metric tyres, I see. Funny how completely these have disappeared from the roads - I've seen one in use this year. I really should fix mine, but then I'd need a new username!

Not so long ago there were more MkI 7 Series around than MkI 6 Series because the 6 was more exclusive but they were also sold about 4 years longer & have been more highly regarded & looked after as a 'classic' therefore there are more Sixes around than Sevens now.....Is there any way to change or modify your username?
