The World of Traveller Dave

“Are we sitting Comfortably ?? Good , then I’ll begin .

This website is intended as a means of sharing with a wider public some of the vehicles and associated objects that’ve crossed the path of my Albion during our last 14+ years travelling around southern europe . It’s not meant to be a technicaly detailed site , anoraks can get that sort of detail from books thank you .. I take photos of things that interest me , and don’t stop to count how many wheelnuts its got etc …though I’ve tried to add succint captions with a few known details . I haven’t the crack code for the european registration systems I’m afraid so vehicle dates are often only listed for that model , if known . For more information on french vehicles there is a monthly magazine “Charge Utile” , which tries to cover most vehicle types , but its nothing like the material available in the uk . Any feedback/questions on uploaded images always welcome . As I live in a converted truck my internet connection is usually limited to visiting the nearest cyber outlet ..so new material will appear when time allows !”

Austin-Loadstar

“Nigel & Goldies Austin Loadstar ‘ 94 – Sadly this was completely lunched out after they sold it on . After the Aurillac Street Theatre Festival in 95 it was towed back to Pierre’s land at Carlucet and left to supposedly await spares from the uk .. but when I last saw it the wooden sides had been chainsawed by a resident uk knobhead , would also put holes in many of the fg’s also left behind to recover the oil !!”
