Re: Classic pictures Update 04/09/2016

Don't know if that outfit was used for a longer amount of time, but I've found a pic doing that same work, but with a Merc tractor... Maybe the Granada driver was fed up with things..? Can't tell you more about those russians, nicely spotted though that one of the yellow 8 leggers is a RHD, didn't n...
