'42 Chev light truck.

Driving home from Renmark (IN THE RED 300ZX), a short stop at Waikerie revealed this ex-WWII Chev.
40-odd years ago, Malcolm, the master of our hunt club had one just like this to tow his horse float, a job that it did very well.The wooden tray was different in that the sides were stepped which gave a plank down each side for soldiers to sit on as they travelled out to shoot up the bad guys. Now they have drones for that, controlled by some playstation enthusiast sitting in his loungeroom. Anyway, as you know, these Chevs were left all over the country when the war finished and they were utilised for all sorts of things for many years but you don't see too many now.
