I took Lorry for a run around the block so to speak to keep everything moving and working. Went to visit the local 4th hand dealer up at Moorland and found these curiosities.

But wait, there's more at Moorland. I do like the Chrysler Ambulance. Would make a good Ghost Busters look alike especially with a remake movie about to be released. Not sure what the bottom one is but is the best pic I could get.

The bottom picture looks like a 1932 Ford cobbadog, and I also like the Chrycler (Royal?) ambulance. ;)

Just thinking, approx when did KW start using the wider "tropical" radiator and wider bonnet?
I recall some of the first 12V71's and KT engined having the wider version, or were they only available on the high H.P. Jobs?

Sometimes Swishy it can be the driver that causes things like that to go wrong, not the equipment. Be a good topic = Drivers V Drovers
