Great shot of Herefords old ET OUY316P
What a great little site. Many thanks to all involved in producing it. My dad drove a succession of Leyland FG "Mothers Pride" travelling shops over a 20 odd year period. Absolutely stifling in summer due to the engine block being in the cab. He was no great mechanic but I can remember him and a neighbour winching a new engine into one of them so they must have been easy enough to work on. As a kid the noise was deafening and crawling up the hill where we lived you always used to wonder whether you would make it. Still fond memories of it, I can see why he chose big engined auto's for his cars after spending all week driving one though.
Please does anyone know the old telephone No of Norman Reeves Motors, High Wycombe in the 1960s.
I am making a model Routemaster bus on route 363 in High Wycombe and want to construct an advert for the back of the bus.
I am now the proud owner of the Austin 301 pictured in the middle . I to would also like to know where that picture was taken .
When I was a boy in Dartford, Kent, one of my neighbours worked for Bowater's and used to bring his A.E.C. Mammoth Major home from time to time. It (or they) looked identical to the preserved MUL 668 pictured here. I wonder if this is a lorry that I personally admired back in 1961/62'ish? Please - who owns this? And, did MUL 668 work from Dartford Paper Mills? As it is also pictured in nearby Northfleet before restoration this is entirely possible. Any further information very much appreciated!!
I am not knowledgeable about these cars - I only know what I read on the Internet. With this in mind, is this a picture of a J2 or a J4? According to most pictures I have seen, this appears to be a J4 van. (My interest in the Morris J4 is because my dad owned one when I was a baby, and sold it when I was about 8 years old, so my first memories of a car was a Morris J4 panel van.)

RAF Matador fuel bowser - I drove one of these delightful vehicles whilst serving as a national serviceman at RAF Coltishall in the early fifties. Flat out down the runway it would reach a heady 50mph before the governor kicked in.
What a lovely little site dedicated to FG commercials, my Father drove one for years as a coal delivery man in the 1960s,
I had the good fortune to be with him virtually everyday, loved every minute of it, and, cut my teeth as a future lorry driver on that Morris FG.
Would love to be a enthusiast member it you will allow please....
