In answer to Al's question Its a green goodess, green in colour ( strange ! )with an orange strip down the sides, It has four wheels ( oops 5 counting the steering wheel ) mmmmmm Oh Its got a spot light on the roof at the front near the two tone air horns, Its a Bedford, doesn't seem to have its ladders any more, need more info then ask the boys at the scrap yard.

yes it was mine, but had to go - too many projects on the go. Barton had somebody keen to restore it in Aberdeen. But if anyone is interested I have all the ladders, blue lights etc etc to complete. Pity nobody wanted to buy it at the time, seems to have gained a bit of interest now though!! It did run and drive, but v v greedy!
