I've opened this thread to make a place for some pictures of motor vehicles - interesting or attractive or just simply curious. I've started it below with three pictures taken at a steam rally a few years ago. I've got a few more but please feel free to contribute pictures.

Here are three pictures taken at a steam rally in High Ham, Somerset, UK, in July 2005. If anyone can identify the vehicles I would appreciate it!

I've just re-read it again, I'm afraid it was one of those topics that got hijacked and then strayed completely off-topic by the last page.

Thanks, all of you, for the information so far. I somehow felt the coach must be an Austin (maybe because I have had several A35s in my time) but it never crossed my mind to put the registration into a search engine (are you on the omega-3 pills, Stanley?). Is your picture an Austin Cambridge/Morris Oxgord that has mutated or been on the steroids?

Where did your details come from Ringo - you don't work for DVLA, do you, or drive one of those blue-and-white cars with blue light on roof?

Doc, thanks for the link to the other thread. I enjoyed the car pictures and also all the other posts in it, even if they were off-topic! Now, what other car pictures have I got...?

Anybody can get details off the DVLA website, all you need is the registration and the make of car.

Super pictures. Your traction engine looks like a Fowler compound to me, can't be more precise without the registration number.

Your Sentinel is a 1931 61/2 ton DG4, the last type of chain drive vehicle, works no; 8571.

I would have got your forward control coach as an Austin. Somebody when I was a kid (might have been the Electric Board) had a fleet of the truck version, I can picture it now.

I reckon the car body used as a basis in Stanley's photo is Farina bodied Austin Westminster, not a common car in their day.

The hybrid, a car body mounted on a Leyland Comet  unit with the 401 diesel engine was taxed and registered and lived at West Marton in an outbarn yard for a while.  It was used as private transport but soon died the death I think, it vanished anyway.  I'll look some unusual pics out for you.  Nothing like pics to get a thread going......

Just posting a couple vehicles that looked rather strange to me.  The first is a Soviet Aerosan, the use of which is fairly obvious.

The second is more of a strange as I can't think what it could be used for?
