Sorry IMCO32,
It looks like all the early greenies have moved on from here at the moment, they reappear from time to time

Hi NormK and IMCO32,
what's with the 60s and red commercial equipment?
I've watched some road construction videos from that era and the trucks, earth movers and other machinery are all this colour. Yellow must have taken hold in the 70s.


Ahh, if only victa had kept producing the thumblatch catcher series, they would be in better shape today!
