[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I know this is a bit strange for Treklens but when I was browsing through our older pictures I came across this one and I thought it might just be a nice change...
The story behind this truck is rather interesting:
In the past years it has been driving around our suburbs, cleaning up yard rubble for the people that live here. It leaves a thick trail of oil behind which does not wash away. The steering wheel needs to be turned at least a full 360 degrees before anything happens. Furthermore the petrol is stored in a jerry can, and it leads to the engine through a garden hose. We are often surprised why it was still able to drive!
Well, about a year ago it got empounded (which has happened twice before but it apparently wasn't empounded...) so we are all quite happy about it.

It was quite a museum piece though, and as you can see the registration 'plate' is not really legal either!

Thanks for dropping by!
