The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model.

New Zealand LDV TD7306
One of the oldest vehicles still in operation, this 1994 LDV 400 originally saw service in Christchurch. It later saw service in Tapawera before relocating to Christchurch. It finished its operational days as an events vehicle based at Kaiapoi. It was replaced with a 4wd Toyota Hiace and was photographed at Wrights Road in May 2013. Its future is reasonably assured as it is slated to become part of the regional historic ambulance fleet which currently encompasses examples from Dodge, International and Bedford.
