Just a thought, but what happened to any of the vehicles used in Summer Wine.

Entwistle's truck
Sid and Ivy's chip van from "Getting Sam Home"
Ludovic's van from "Cheering Up Ludovic"
the van driven by Compo's nephew in "The Great Boarding House Bathroom Caper"
Milburn's car
Howard's bicycle
Wesley's land rover
the infamous Loxley Lozenge
the race car Compo drove in "Car And Garter"
Wally's motorcycle

There may be more I've missed, but I ran a few registrations through DVLA. Apparently MOG 612X (Wesley's Land Rover) is now on a grey Citroen, but Edie's car (WRH 132J) shows a red Triumph, suggesting it's still running strong. Any more info and does anyone actually know any registrations to assist?

Edies car is still on the road, having much restoration done and looking lovely, one of the Land Rovers used by Wesley was beyong saving and was scrapped

The bus used in the final episode is still operational, not sure but it maybe at the Keighley Bus Museum

Edie probably wouldn't think so, she think they'd been swapping the gears around again!!!

Was the Land Rover MOG 612X used in many 1990s Foggy episodes? It's on DVLA system as a grey Citroen, so the Land Rover may have used false plates for filming and this is just a coincidence.

More likely is the car was scrapped and the registration plate was sold on as a cherished plate

Rick, Crushers car was a 2 CV a French small car , much was made of big Crusher and his small car.He took Nora in it to do catering at Dream Acres!
Clegg persuaded the other man with money Blamire to go halves in the cost of buying a car. That was when they met Walter ( and a tractor):fp:

Thanks, Dick. I had wondered what kind of car Crusher had. Don't suppose you know as well the kind Clegg bought?
