A superb tag axled Scania LS141 tractor semi-trailer combo running on a Swedish circuit. The Scania was powered by a 14 litre V8 rated at 375 HP. This power and of course it matching torque was making it the true King of the road. Challenged by many but it reigned souverign for many years.
The D-ford was the backbone of the Ford truck activities in Europe. Its replacement the Cargo was more expensive and not on par with the competition. Ford disappeared entirely from the European market. Luckily it's back with an all-new F-max series produced in Turkey.
Mercedes tried to extend the live cycle of its agedSK cab design with the introduction of the Eurocab version. Though coming late it wasn't a bad attempt. Mercedes offered a narrow and full-width version. The one on this picture is a full-width unit.
An air cooledMagrius Deutz equipped with the famous Meiler tipper body. The then German manufacturer was the absolute number one on the European tipper market. Unfortunately, Magirus didn't survive and was bought by the owners of Fiat.
A superb Cummins V8 powered Krupp tipper combo taking part in a dedicated Krupp rally in the Sauerland (Germany). The rig is perfectly restored and running if it came directly from its production line. Ap[ity the brand didn't make it after all.
The Scania Streamline was also an intermediate solution. The aged GPRT series replacement was not ready yet, Scania had to do something with the existing design. The solution was the replacement of some cab panels by a load of SMC panels and calling it Streamline.
