The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch

New Zealand Commer
One of a number of Commer and Dodge based appliances built for the New Zealand Fire Service by Wormald and Mills Tui, this 1978 Commer RG13 was Wormald built and new to the Wellington area where it served with the Plimmerton volunteer brigade. Once decommissioned by the New Zealand Fire Service it was acquired by the Waitaki District Council and allocated to the Hampden rural fire force where it served for many years. Now replaced by a newer ex NZFS Hino it sits in the Council's yard near Oamaru in October 2013 awaiting disposal.
