Not sure how you managed that ......


Something I stumbled across today ...

http://www.autoevolution.com/news/me...e2.html#agal_0



Back when vehicles were proper and right hand drive.

(It's not the Renntransporter that attracted my attention but the much older device on page 2. Which is where that link should take you.)
Sorry Grant, I knew I had talents, I just didn't realise they were so negative!
I saw the Renntransporter (or a replica) at Goodwood FOS a couple of years ago, what an amazing & beautiful piece of machinery.

The 1924 pic is impressive.....but have to say the Renntransporter is so "swoopy" its incredible. (Love the casual "maximum speed 105mph" script on the rear arches..... )

Ten years ago?

That was an awful lot of money back then for an old truck.

I expect one would need to pay an awful lot more now........

Is a lovely old thing though. 11 tons loaded- that's nothing!
