A nice Mercedes LAK three-way tipper caught by my camera on a Kippertreff near Geilenkirchen Germany. The short hooded Mercedes trucks were extremely reliable and very popular. Mercedes continued its production for decades in Brazil after it was stopped in Germany.
The very first "Mack & Speciaal transport dag" in Driebergen. Zwagerman came with its Mack to the event. Mack has an almost mystical name for most of the truck lovers. This reputation started in the first world war and continues even today.
The owner of the Anhalt Tanktransport is also a huge fan of truck oldtimers. He owns a number of excellently restored oldies including this great looking Scania LB140. The 350 HP strong Swede is in an excellent condition including a matching reefer semi-trailer.
A 6 x 4 Scania T143H sleeper cabbed tipper combo. The 2 and 3 T-series were the nicest bonneted trucks it ever built. The design of the cab and bonnet matched perfectly. The "4" series version was much more a compromise.
A 2,3 meter wide Volvo N12, the rig came originally from Zwitserland. The aluminium tipper body and the spoked wheels are typical for the Alpine country. The rig was spotted at the yard of a Dutch truck trader. It easily could be still there but it now most likely runs somewhere in Africa.
A genuine UK registered Volvo FL10 right hooker parked at the Denekamp border crossing. The FL is equipped with a pusher axle, typical for a UK tractor. The FL was not intended for long-distance transport but a large number of operator simply did it.
