    The griffin is chosen as logo when scania and vabis merged together as scania- vabis.
    The griffin came from the arms of the Swedish province Skåne were the factory is.
    The nickname of that piece of sh.t are many.
    Grilled chicken, grilled rooster, schamia (merging of schaam ( shame) and scania) ,skodia ( merging of skoda and scania) or what i use, product produced from recycled petbottles.

    1)Searched for book.
    2) Found it.
    3) Have just bought it
    4). Arrives Friday/Saturday

    I had thought hard and felt sure it had "Golden" in the title, found Golden Treasury books but they were just fairy tales, while "mine" were about all sorts of things/people. Then, using "Miss Prune and Miss Prism (yes, another of the tales in my book!) I came across a forum with a page for people like me searching for a book with minimal clues to work on. And there it was, someone looking for their childhood book containing the above story and describing it as having a blue linen embossed hard cover. My book exactly.
    Another forum member came up with the full title and from there it was easy and I soon found it on eBay.
    Can't wait for Friday/Saturday.
    Yes, long OT. No apologies

    That thinghy on the side of the cab is a griffion.
    The trade mark of scania. As the star is for mercedes
    Oh, you naming that image has brought back a memory stretching into the distant past, to a wonderful story book that my parents had bought me. The tales were fascinating and there was one which I have never forgotten - "The Griffin and the Minor Canon" (A canon is a minor member of the Church of England heirarchy.)
    I tried Googling for it and there it is, see http://www.classicshorts.com/stories/griffin.html
    It is well written and with a strong moral tone, but quite amusing. I must try and find some of the other tales. perhaps even the book itself - I remember exactly what it looked like and would love to buy a copy.
    I wonder what significance the griffin had for Scania?

    Is the paper completely paint covered, or is there just a chink of paper showing anywhere? If so, you could try soaking the chink with plain water and maybe that would gradually penetrate between the white paint and the blue bits. Then peel it off.

    Yes, I've been thinking about the dashboard table as you mentioned a while ago that you'd bought some stuff for it, but I keep forgetting to ask about it in my mails. Are you going to do that great walnut staining on it like in the old HC? That was very effective. (Don't you dare say you can't be bothered.)

    That is what i will try anyway , the problem is that the bleu you see on the rooftop is dried paper.
    I have to sand it, and that you will see in the new piant,
