The pandemic military vehicle show 2020!
We won't be having any shows or runs for some time, so this is a virtual MV meet. Please send a picture of your green machine (or blue, red or yellow!) to the webmaster at firstname.lastname@example.org. It doesn't have to be your present vehicle but can be a blast from the past. One of two pictures per vehicle please. You can send them as a jpeg attachment or, if you have lots, via the free WeTransfer software. We start off with a photo of the South East Midlands Area founder and now MVT vice-president Steve Gascoigne in his Ford GPA, followed by vehicles that have been owned by webmaster Peter Clarke (also an area founder-member).

Will Needham's CMP Chevrolet, Dodge etc
1951 Dodge M37, 1941 Chevrolet 15cwt CMP complete with bullet hole in driver’s door, and Sam's LR Series III owned from new by the farm . Guess what the middle tool is for, Noddy badge to first correct answer! We used to have a Chevrolet in my grandfather's time after the war and it was used on the farm for general duties along with an Austin K6. The number 20 is off the back of the original farm truck, so I thought only fitting it went on this one also along with it’s spare wheel and tools dad had kept hold of for 70-odd years ! Keep well and see you all soon.
