That is just SO COOL.

My grandfather drove lorries all thorough WW1 and then went on to become a commercial driver, then transport manager for his whole career. He loved Scammel's and would have been all over that one.

Keep us posted on the resto.

You know you've got structural integrity problems when the roll cage is made out of wood... Very nice though!

Love the black 2CV cowering by the fence too. That's an investment, that is.
