I was looking up Cuba in advance of Christmas visit to ensure all was well with the golden oldies, I think the influx of new vehicles will be very slow and the oldies will still find homes somewhere. I like a photo I saw of a Thames trader truck bus, I wonder how that got there, shows there are many more things to be discovered, many thousands of elderly vehicles still kicking around, Sri Lanka may not be so fruitful, everything i see looks very modern, when Martin Rickitt went last they still used steam lorries on the road work gang and he isn't THAT old. Mandy has been getting the stock sorted out deay for the Irish trip to the Dublin Pioer rally weekend after next and this coming weekend its the big un back at the IWM at Duxford near Cambridge with around 500 buses expected at Showbus. We learn that the largest continental show in the Netherlands happens at the last weekend in July Star Truck I think its called so might pencil that in, they even carry on into the evening with the best lit trucks etc. Speaking of which Panama has bright lighted and noisey night time buses and in Japan they compete to have the biggest light shows on their trucks, the latter is tentatively on the drawing board for 2016.
Tonight I bring you Stobarts, must dash now my bowl of fruit is ready, day 2 of weekly diet days, pub night tomorrow!
