Truck: Scania 112M.
Company, homebase: G Snel. Woerden, Holland.
Remarks: Sorry about the bad quality of this picture, but this is the only Scania I ever pictured with a topsleeper. Topsleepers were in at these days, because there was a maximum length of the truck including the cab. A topsleeper means a shorter cab, so for the hauler extra payload in the maximum length. Most of the truckers were not so happy with a topsleeper! Nowadays the regulation is changed. A standard sleepercab is now always allowed. However, there are still some truckingcompanies using topsleepers.
This Scania is hauling for the famous Spa springwater company in Spa, Belgium. Taken southbound highway A-2.
