Was this the one that overturned in Carfax, Oxford some years ago or was it the T.L. I remember covering high rise calls with the Dodge/Orbitor from Reading (Caversham Rd).A round trip of 52 miles at least.

It didn't overturn, the throttle jammed wide open at the top of High st. and it crashed into a refrigerated delivery truck resulting in the cabin being totally smashed. Bob Skelcher.

I took her to Holland and then on to Bonn in Germany in 1971. We demonstrated the appliance all over, and in force ten gales back in Rotterdam just the four of us, I'm the only one still alive happy times.
