Magazine Description

In this issue

Our December issue is the “V8 Special” as we turn the spotlight on the engine synonymous with Scania. Not only that, we take an in depth look at just about every other V8 that came to the UK! The hardest thing about this issue was cramming in all the content. If you like awesome trucks, you’re gonna love this issue… Editor’s Choice is GCS Johnson’s custom-built Scania 142 T-cab – you’ve never seen one anything like this! We visit JM Paterson to find out why only a Scania V8 will do for heavy equipment moving work There’s a massive 4500 word, ten page feature looking at every model of V8 truck that was sold in the UK courtesy of legendary truck historian Peter Davies! Super-rare Mercedes-Benz Actros 2554 MP2 from Northern Ireland with special Michael Schumacher airbrushing MAN’s TGX V8s – Allely’s run these on heavy haulage work. Bob Beech takes a look at the history of the engine and the trucks Bedford TM V8. A superb “screaming Jimmy” two-stroke Detroit Diesel from Cornwall Dodge Commando V8 – sweet little Perkins-powered 26-tonne tractor unit. Not all V8s were big and heavy! Incredible Ivecos! Long Haul Commercial’s are Ireland’s Iveco experts and we look at three of their finest: a pair of TurboStars and a EuroStar King of the Landfill – the story of McGovern’s custom-built air-cooled Magirus-Deutz V8 tractor units and their mint restored example Renault Magnum Mack V8 rebuild. We check out a work in progress and discover more about the American-French Connection NOT a V8! Paul O’ Callaghan charts the first part of a long haul to Italy in a Volvo FH 540
