Tayview 17th March 2011

Tayview 17th March. I was just about to stop and record this view when this truck came into view.

Old Ford flatbed chugging uphill, probably a model T circa 1925 in the livery of Fishers, an acid green quite a change from the original, Ford having said that one could have any colour as long as it was black.

A more up to date mode of transport.
Fishers Services (Cupar) Ltd is a private company categorized under Laundries and located in Cupar, United Kingdom. Current estimates show this company has an annual revenue of 16,260,472 and employs a staff of approximately 150. Companies like Fishers Services (Cupar) Ltd offer: Laundry Clothes, Cleaning And Laundry Services, Laundry Business, Pick Up Laundry Services and Drop Off Laundry Services.

Making it up the brae, it disappears round the bend.
The Model T engine was produced continuously from September 27, 1908 through August 4, 1941, exactly 12,000 days. This makes it one of the longest engines in series production, especially considering that the specifications remained mostly unchanged for this entire duration. Its production run for the U.S. consumer market for passenger cars and pickups was shorter, being the 19 years' production run of the Model T itself for that market (1908 to 1927). But the engine continued to be produced and sold to various consumer, industrial, military, and marine markets throughout the world until 1941.
