Another Swedish truck that put our British truck makers to shame, we couldn't match them ie Volvo, Scania, Daf and Mercedes. We never kept up with the times. I can't think of any British truck makers today. If we have, they'll have some sort of Foreign connection.

Nothing Aerodynamic about this lorry.
I thought we'd seen the last of this subject.

Well said Garry worked at Daf Eindhoven for 30 years we tested Layland trucks when Daf took them over rubbish 20 years behind the times.

Gary,
All DAFs copied from Leyland trucks.

Where is Eddie (AKA Ozymandias) these days.
Thought he would have had to say a word or two.....lol.

Some models sold with the Daf brand were designed and built by Leyland trucks at Farington, Preston. In 1987, Daf merged with Leyland and became Leyland Daf trucks and was floated on the Dutch stock exchange as Daf NV. The company then traded as Leyland Daf in the UK. In 1993, Leyland Daf became insolvent and Layland Daf went into receivership. Now Daf trucks parent company is Paccar holding BV.

You can say that about cars aswell.
DTease don't make sense??

Alan, I think Ozymandias as gone to cast his seed on more fertile soil.

Matron, I wonder, could you run a quick check on Alan ?, as he appears to be rambling incoherently and may possibly have OD'd on his Temazepam.

Comments by Veronica, 19th March 2017  
DTease/Alan our friend Ozy has probably gone in search of even older pictures of wagons for his portfolio...going back to when the wheel was invented! That should cheer Howard up!

Comments by GW., 20th March 2017  
The Laxey wheel was invented in Wigan......Just sayin'

Hi Howard P, If you click on "Upload Your Photos", the red
writing says "No recent photos", only old photos please.
This photo is from 1972, so I feel that it is quite old and the location is OK. Behind the building in the picture is King Street, To the left of the lorry is Wigan North Western Station.
