  AEC LORRY PHOTOS BY GYLES CARPENTER  
Gyles Carpenter's lorry photos are a bit special.  Firstly, they are of very good quality, and secondly, they capture our favourite restored AECs on the move through beautiful surroundings.  Gyles' patience waiting by the roadside at well chosen locations across the length and breadth of Britain is rewarded with many superb photos.
Here is a selection of some of the best.
