    There aren't european truckbuilders anymore that build torpedo's.
    Those what are build now ,are build by costums companies.
    The iveco strator is an Australian model,but with the narrow cab, a Dutch garage build them now here too but with the wide cab.
    Scania don't build them either anymore, a Dutch company designes a new torpedo model for the latest scania model

    I really love those "torpedo-trucks" - this is what I remember from my childhood years. There is one in Trondheim, operating out of the part of the port called Brattøra. I think it belongs to Stokke Transport.

    It's a Scania I think.

    I know the son of the owner, he was a trainee at the ferries a while back.

    I had a truck in my sandbox!.

    The owner was the owner of the house we rented. I have seen a photo of it not too long ago, if I find it when I get home, I will share it with all of you.

And after formed to cans to one of the other factories. They had 4 milkpowder factories in holland . And a soup and smash potato factory we're load with the trailer as with containers, and with the reefer trailers we load the chocolate stuff at the factory were the Nuts and the bros bars were produced.
