Three years at CWM made me a real traditionalist, and I keep remembering Bob Parkinson saying, "I want the people to see what the circus used to be, not what it is today. That's what this site is about!

POPULAR TRUCK IN GERMANY


No, it's not a Matchbox, or a Hot Wheels, it seems to be the truck of choice as a work truck, sort of like our pick-up, only bigger & heavier. There is one on every farm, and all of those are the same color green. the bed doesn't dump, and many of them have no tailgate, yet they seem to find them handy, the short wheelbase is for maneuvering in the narrow streets of many of the smaller towns. The show trucks are similar, but a little larger, and of course more powerful. A couple of the Krone trucks have removable beds, the bed is jacked up like a pick up camper revealing a fifth wheel underneath, for pulling semi trailers.

Hi, Bill. I believe this is a Unimog. Bob MacDougall had one of these on RBBB Blue show when he was General Manager.
