Squirrels nuts & flying rivets


First published in 2004, and reprinted after many years out-of-print, this tells how Richard 'Turbo' Vincent 'revived' a1924 Foden C Type wagon from just a boiler and cylinder block. His nickname explains how he managed to do this in just three years.

This is far from your normal 'how it was done' book, with considerable, and often ribald Dorset humour to the fore, although the engineering is far from forgotten. The end result is magnificent and has attended many rallies.

90 pages, numerous photos, largely in colour and also numerous cartoons by Wayne Savage. Paperback.
