The small but keen Trojan OC holds the Northern Trojan Rally at the British Commercial Vehicle Museum at Leyland, Lancashire on June 14.
The cover of its current magazine reproduces the old advertisement comparing the joys of holidaying in a Trojan with the agonies of train travel. One notes the man, his wife and three children in the car, perhaps suggesting that its splendid springing was more conducive to pregnancy than the A7’s harder suspension, a Chummy A7 having room for only two kids. The windscreen is shown open on this Trojan, but, as the Club says, this was not so much to enjoy fresh air as to replace the underfloor fumes and heat drawn up by a closed screen, to the discomfort of front seat occupants whose clothes came to smell like old oil drums!
