    Can't quite remember what happened at the engine end, but in the car(?!?) you stopped the engine, then pushed the superficially conventional ignition/starter switch into a recessed position and that started the engine in reverse. Bit of a palaver for doing three point turns, but the thing was so light you could just lift the front end up and swing it around. Because it had a Sachs motorbike type engine the gearbox was positive stop operated by a teleflex, so you just moved the lever to change gear and it returned to the same position. Quite a quick change as I recall (this was 45 years ago!).

    As above, that transporter's really nice. The John Mould collection's very impressive. Is this (a '34 BB) the one you're referring to, Jack?

    ^^^ That's a cracker. I seem to remember John Mould arriving at the All Ford Rally at Gaydon museum with a '32 BB fifth wheel truck with a B pickup on the back of the trailer a few years ago.
