I don’t think I’ve ever posted 3 photos of the same truck on the same day before, but I really like the look of this Scania… from all angles, so I’ve made an exception.

2 photos are more or less 3/4 frontal views (left and right side respectivelive), while the third is and extreme close up, almost profile view, showing the quotes on the side. One quote reads "Vognmænd der ikke kører skandinaviske biler …er på vej ud af branchen", which translates to "Hauliers that don’t use scandinavian trucks …are on the way out of the business"

The other quote reads "Vil du fremad i flokken, skal der stå V8 på blokken", meaning "To move forward in the flock, it must say V8 on the block"

While people may or may not agree with the statements, they are certainly proof of a burning passion, and this – I think – is something to applaud.

Tip: to locate trucks of particular interest to you, check my collections page, "truck collection" (www.flickr.com/photos/lavulv/collections/72157684190396672/ ) – here you will find all trucks organized in albums, by haulier (with zip-codes), year, brand and country.

Retirement age for trucks: many used trucks are offered for sale on international markets. If sold to a foreign buyer, this will not be listed in the danish motor registry, so a "retired" truck may or may not have been exported. In other words, the "retirement age" only shows the age, at which the truck stopped running on danish license plates.
