Merc liked introducing new gear change ideas.. Remember the EPS gearstick?
The lightest touch to either side would put it into neutral.

Don't have an HGV licence and no rational explanation to like lorries, but love looking at pictures of the old ones. Would love to own one.
Me too, I’ve always loved old commercials.

Are buses allowed on this thread, when I first started at South Yorkshire Motors late 60's, bus enthusiasts used to come round the back of the garage to photograph this bus.

TWY8 (JWT112) South Yorkshire (Pontefract) 81

Another bus that's not as it seems, TWY 8 is an Albion Valiant which started off life having a Burlingham coach body fitted, registered as JWT 112 and numbered 57 with South Yorkshire Motors.... that particular body was removed in 1958 and went on to be fitted onto South Yorkshire 51, a 1940 chassis which then became 57 and registered DYG53, also preserved. The Albion was rebodied by Charles H Roe of Leeds and attended the rally scene until being delicensed in 1981 and then stored for 29 years until passing an MOT in 2010... and is the only known bus whereby both the original and subsequent bodies still exist in preservation. Seen at ravensthorpe for the spring open day of the Dewsbury Bus Museum

Northampton Transport ran a fleet of Daimlers. My dad used to say that he went to work in a chauffeur driven Daimler!

More Seddon’s and Seddon Atkinson’s
The very last were an abomination, imho. Putting a Sed Atk badge on a bloody Iv*co is like putting a Cameron Diaz face mask on Ann Widdcombe.

thats common in a way unfortunately , buying top shelf and established names in hope to add a bit of respectability to your products , MG are made in China now I think ,
