Issue #61 of Vintage Trucks & Commercials Magazine sees in Spring with an extensive range of vintage trucking content for all tastes.
Our feature restoration article is on Murray Langfords Diamond T 950RS which is impressive on the eyes, as well as the story from over the ditch where Mark Erskine tells the tale of Don Kitchen, the designer from the Rootes group, at the centre of TS3 – 2 stroke opposed piston diesel engines.
This issue we also feature a colourful tale from Dale Warry on the family history with his 1968 FC100 Toyota that still has its original working clothes on. We have third instalment of ‘Across the Pacific’, where Darren Hingston looks further into Pacific Trucks and their involvement with the electricity commission in Tasmania.
