Gander Aircraft Museum NFLD



On my travels I always look for old British cars. Recently in Newfoundland I came across a 1957 Rover and a 1979 Triumph TR7. However the strangest and most interesting vehicle was found at the Aircraft Museum. The Karrier Motor Corp was an British commercial vehicle producer until taken over by the Rootes Group in 1960. The Karrier in the photos looks almost identical to the Commer trucks of the same era. This strange little vehicle was used for loading and unloading passengers from the planes in the early days of passenger aviation. I never thought to look at the time but now thinking about it, I imagine there was probably no more than a few hundred miles on the odometer. If you are looking for a low mileage vehicle to restore this could be it. However with the amount of work needed, the stairway to the skies might turn into a stairway to the big garage in the sky!!!!!
Cheers and keep reading.
