Sabre
I'm looking to buy a Sabre, there are quite a few available at the moment, I've been looking at low miles, circ 40k but they also have many hours on the clock, which on the last couple I have seen as not been working.
Does anyone know or have any idea what the ration of miles to hours normally is?

Information Wanted - to help trace a fire engine
Nigel Horne is trying to trace a fire engine. The machine in question was built in about 1944 and after service use it was preserved and stored at Bruntingthorpe Airfield in Leicestershire (do any members remember the Dennis Drive day which was held there in May 1992 ?? ).
In 1977 the fire engine was placed on loan to a Leicester hospital after which period, contact was lost. If anyone can shed any light on this fire engine, particularly whether it still exists.
