Dover Transport Museum

Hi folks,

great time at the War and Peace show but we thought we would have a day away from the tanks and went to the Museum of Transport which had an open day with loads of extra vehicles to see and snap so I was in my element.

One for Martin

This brings back loads of memories, the Austin A40. I did loads of gearbox work on these in my youth.

The star of the show a Sherpa Autosleeper called "Chirpy" whose owner was George.  This vehicle was made in 1983 and still runs well.

Interior very good for it's age, even had a fridge. Note the frills around the cushions.

and loads of worktops although short of a toilet.

Modified late Mini V6

Love the window stickers.

Pheasant on a truck and yes it is wood.

Kit car.

E type Jaguar, just right for this weather.

There, hope you liked the ones outside, loads more inside too.

Thanks for looking.

Best Regards, Mike
