A Volvo N88 still running in 1982 in Wallis Switzerland. The 6 x 3 three way tipper is equipped with heavy hub reduction rear axles. The tipper body is a local built aluminium unit. The sturdy Swede is running on Trilex rims, for a long time standard in Switzerland.
A more or less original Krupp 6 x 4 tipper. I made this shot on a Kippertreff held in Bottrop Kirchhellen a number of years ago. A full restoration would be understandable but its current look is great as well. The Krupp is one of the last powered by a Cummins V8.
A nicely restored Bedford tipper taking part on an oldtimer run. The Bedford J5 was very popular in the UK and a part of the European mainland. Bedford exported it also in large quantities overseas. Even today there are still running a lot.
Two German registered MAN F2000 swap body combos. Both MANs are equipped with the tall Roadhouse cab. The F90 gave MAN an entry on the heavy long-distance truck market. Its predecessor the F8 never reached this position.
Two UK truckers are having a chat with a Dutch truck spotter/photographer in the nineties. The Volvo is an F12 road tanker combo and the Scania a than new Streamline unit. The Volvo is showing a fleet livery, the Scania a more traditional UK livery.
A new shot of an old truck working on a daily basis. Dutch operator Alblas is running a substantial number of old trucks on international routes. The oldies are DAFs or MANs and most of them at least 20 years old. This MAN is an F90 top sleeper dating back to the eighties.
