Ok we’ll give this another go this week as last week seemed to be quite popular. A great big stick this week and not one I recognise so a challenge to most Europeans but give it a go anyway. 3 criteria required please, you all should get at least one right!;
Lots of guesses and lots got the right marque but only three guessed the right model. The winner was the first to give the right answer. See below;
Answer: Volvo F16
Winner: Mark “Choppy” Steward
Message me your address and I’ll put a sticker in the post.
Guess the make and model and leave all answers below. First correct answer wins a sticker!
Here’s a truck we’ve not seen much of recently, Steve Marsh and GB14 STE. I think things have been a little quiet for Marshy of late, with mainly local runs to the North of France, Ireland and the Benelux countries. These locals are not worthy of blogging Mr Marsh’s eyes (I disagree), so when I received a photo of an Um Bongo vehicle followed by “Guess where I am?” I instantly thought back to the last time I spoke of and saw anything to do with Um Bongo; Portugese-MAN-O-Juice.
So how does the master of international express hot shot work carry out such a job and how does it pan out? I’ll tell you how, just read on. All KM’s paid too.

The eagle eyed Marsh-MAN fans amoungst you, might have noticed a little bit of new bling on the still relatively new MAN. Marshy is a modest man when it comes to blinking up the hard working wagon, but after a little trip to Jimbars in Cumbria, a little light shine was added to GB14. A full front bumper and a very tidy little rear brake light bar, both fitted with additional LED’s. Very subtle but very smart during the hours or darkness I’m sure. Anyway, back to business, Destion Denmark.
