Some of you may have seen this Fire Engine as the Dutch owners have travelled the uk. It was manufactured in 1952 and they bought it 30 years ago. They converted it and have now done 400,000 kilometres in it. The shipped it to Australia and New Zealand and travelled around those countries for about 14 months. They are presently in Orebic, Croatia and heading to Albania.DSCF6219.JPG

Just asked the owners, apparently it does 7 kilometres to a litre. So what does that work out at? He must be good mechanically to own one of these and has a huge roof box full of spares.

That’s not bad. Was filling my Motorhome at garage recently and a guy came in with a 1980s Wnnebago. It was in unbelievable nick and had only done just over 20,000 miles, with oak carpentry. He told me he got just over 12 miles to the gallon :D

It’s not just about being good mechanically, where does he get the specialised parts from? Unless he carries a huge amount in that box. It probably needs a service every 2000 miles or less.
