Oldest DAF in The UK??

Finally something DAF on the blog! It’s been a while since the last DAF blog and I have to say that I don’t really have any excuses so I apologise.  It brought a wee small smile to my face when I received a request from DAF Trucks UK to help promote a search they are running, how could I refuse?! 

What DAF UK are trying to do is to find the the oldest DAF truck still on the road in the UK. It doesn’t matter if it’s working or not, but it does have to be road going, i.e. still as to move on the road under its own power. A simple request and I’m sure that some of you can respond and some of you will know some good old DAF trucks that are still turning a wheel. As it goes I’m quite keen to see the results myself so I hope, you my dear readers, will come up with some real gems. As I said it doesn’t matter if it’s a worker or not, DAF UK want to see your old girls please. 

You can tweet me @truckbloguk or @DAFTrucksUK and send your pics that way or you can post your pics up. Probably a good idea to put a manufacture or first reg date on if you can. Alternatively you can post your pics on DAF UK’s Facebook page or again you can post them on the Truckblog FB page. Which ever way you want to share you beloved old DAF please use the hash tags #DAF #Goingthedistance #truck

I look forward to seeing what turns up and as and when DAF UK have completed their search I hope to do a write up with the results.
