      Memories, ah the way things used to be done. This is a great shot of that period of time. Congrats on capturing an 'action' shot.
      The Scania ain't bad either.

      that scania used to belong to bob macmillan from toowoomba before he bought a gum boot in the same colour scheme. all us boys worked hard back then best way to cart spuds was straight on the deck as they never .cant beat a haulmark trailer you could fill them up and not hurt them.
