Big Boys & Their Big Toys

Big boys have big toys we all know that, but when two company directors are as truck mad as the drivers they send all over Europe, then why shouldn’t they have a big toy to play with?? If I could afford a truck and trailer to play with then I’d do the same, at the end of the day with directorship comes big responsibility and big stress, so surely that allows big toys?!

The two directors above are two of the biggest truck nerds you could meet, both nuts about their respective Swedes. The photo was taken en route to the Truckstar Festival in Holland back at the end of July and the two trucks were side by side for a fair distance from what I hear. What a treat for all the drivers coming the other way, 1980’s retro trucking at its best. The other this I hear is that the two of them were giggling like school boys with new BMX bikes oh and something else to do with no speed limiters but I don’t know what they are on about!!

What a sight, even better with a little black and white. I’m not sure which one I’d rather be piloting, both great to look at, both big cans compared to the competition, both a drivers dream. For me restored trucks don’t get better than these two and I just wish everyone could afford to have a trailer with their tractor units, it just rings every bell on the old skool wall. For me I saw these two and as awesome as the scene is, it just reminds me in every way of two other famous trucks…….

  1. Love this blog and apologies for not commenting on it sooner! Love the stuff on the 7.5 tonners, last bit of driving I did was on an IVECO Hi-Roof 7.5 tonner, it had a raised single bunk, a fridge, air Con, air Seat, night heater, heated mirrors, all the little extra’s you don’t normally see on a puddle jumper, I believe it had been a dealer demo, it was 06 reg,and it’s almost 8 years ago now since I was driving it,I used to do a week away at a time in it, it was a cracking little truck, much better than some of the daycabs I’ve had to get me head down in Hahaha! ๐Ÿ˜‰
