    Folks

    This ageing beauty lies in a field near me. Must have been somebody's pride and joy once.

    Any ideas about it?

    I wouldn't describe a modified bus as beautiful ; on the other hand , this IS a beautiful racing transporter , and a work of art

    Now there is a thought :^)

    From looking (at a distance) I had just assumed it was a race car/bike transporter. It could very well be a horse transporter. I really need to try and get some better pics.
