Classic Commercial Vehicles - Trucks DVD

The world is developing rapidly every day leading to major changes throughout the world. For almost 100 years, the UK's road networks was buzzing with the sounds of haulage and delivery vehicles that were almost exclusively made up of trucks built on home soil. From the emergence of trucks in the 1920's right through to the 1960's, British truck manufacturers became renowned across the world for their production of reliable workaday Lorries and for their quality engineering. The likes of Albion, Commer, Foden and Scammell would become household names, which greatly contributed to the economic growth as well as playing major roles in time of conflict, especially during the two World Wars. However, in the 21st century a truck that is proudly carrying the badge of a British company is not often seen and it is even rarer to see one made on British soil, only the very few such as the Leyland and Dennis has survived.

Little Book Of Trucks

For almost a century, the United Kingdom's road network rumbled to the sound of haulage and delivery vehicles almost exclusively made up of trucks built on home soil. From the 1920s right through to the 1960s, British manufacturers became renowned the world over for their production of reliable workaday Lorries and quite rightly earned a reputation for quality engineering. The likes of Albion, Commer, Foden and Scammell would eventually become household names, yet in the 21st Century, a truck proudly carrying the badge of a British company is seldom seen and furthermore it is even rarer to find one that has actually been built in this country. Once the domain of the Atkinson, Bedford and ERF, today's highways and byways are plied by MANs, DAFs and Ivecos. Richly illustrated with over 100 previously unpublished images, the Little Book of Trucks charts the history of the King of the Road, from the humble steam wagon to giant diesel-powered juggernauts.
