I don't know, I didn't check until a few days later.  These food trucks are sometimes taken around on the back of a trailer.

      First up, one from August, at Godmanchester, a nice mk1 Rangey in forum beige.
       

       

       
      Now a pair of Rover 600's, one in Huntingdon, looking tidy, and another taken today in Needham Market with a severe case of lacquer peel
       

       

       
      Tesco Martlebum spots now, nice tidy old Merc 420SE with misery spec wheeltrims, and an AC/DC branded Datsun SX
       

       

       

       
      Now a Buick spotted just round the corner from me last week
       

       

       
      Last, but not least for this post, this funky Peugeot 604, it was mint, plastic seat covers on it too, not sen one in donkeys years. Taken in the car park of a toy fair in Needham Market. PHWOAR is all I can say!
