    Transporters and support vehicles

    I thought I would start a specific thread for transporters and support vehicles. Did we ever cover these on the old forum?

    Have a look in your own Stratos photos and look in the background...see anything good....post it here.

    Thanks for posting transporter pics on the other thread,it has made me start sorting out the pictures on my computer.

    Here is the first few,got some more somewhere.

    Nice one Tom - I'll try and remember the place I spooted a very unusual Series 1 Beta Saloon. I spoke to the chairman of the LMC a while back, Andy Collins, who is a real Beta nut about it. He'd never heard of one - a hatchback Saloon. All the others had boot lids but this one was done properly!

    I wonder if the club coffers would stretch to an old Italian truck?

    An old service truck would be cool for the shows

    I have come across a few old transporters on my travels with work but most have been in pretty poor condition and have sold for silly money. The restoration costs for them are huge.

    Heres the Chardonnet service van.

    Brilliant photos Tom.
    'Love the old factory/workshop building, and the support cars lined up outside.

    Vince,
    I could have done with these photos a while back?!

    'Notice the rear wheel and wheel arch combination on the Chardonnet photo above.

    Could you bring yourself to bolt a roof rack to this?

    That would be criminal! It's probably the last one in RHD! Find a restoration case in Italy and put a hatchback in it whilst you're at it!

    It's in amazing condition. 'Talk about a charmed life?
    I wonder if the hatchback special has some HPE tailgate furniture in its construction?
