This morning, Bedfords from all over the country will start arriving at Lance Cryer's Bedford Heaven at Puriri for the fourth Annual Bedford New Zealand Rally.
Surrounding the arrivals will be the relics seen here and hundreds more old Beddies who've had their day and now watch the world from the sidelines.
It's well to remember that these and many more were the mainstay of New Zealand's transport from the early 1940's and many of us are committed to keeping the marque on the country's roads. Often to the horror of others in their plastic tupperware computerised containers on wheels.
But let's not go there. I hear feathers rustling.
This Labour Weekend, the faithfull will be here to pay their respects to the past, enjoy the present and consider this for the future.
