Rally - Tribute Truck 2




Earlier this year, April 7th and 8th, I posted some pics on these pages showing a rather special truck which had just joined the Shotts based Stuart Nicol Transport fleet. The truck's driver, Ally Shaw, is a rally fan and more specifically a McRae fan, and his new truck was dedicated to the achievements of Colin, Alister and Jim McRae, and what a feast for the eyes it is. Obviously the monthly 'Truck & Driver' magazine thinks so too and the SNT Volvo FH500 has been picked as this month's 'Editor's Choice'. This article and its pictures alone are worth the £3.70 cover price, but there's more to read if you have a technical mind and an interest commercial vehicles.

There's even a 'Free Gift'. Attached to the cover of the mag is a very handy 'Pocket Guide to Driver's Hours'. If you have a couple of minutes this is worth a read. What many of you won't appreciate is just how strictly controlled a trucker's life on the road is these days. This wee book gives a glimpse of the complexities involved in calculating driving hours, break times and rest periods. It will take a bloke or a blokess with more than an 'O' Level in maths to work it out! Even I learned something - and I used to be a be a commercial vehicle journalist!

  14. Low Cost Credit Card Processing, why does it cost so much? If you take your car to a reputable auto repair shop their services might not be the cheapest in town, but there are some valid reasons for this. The old adage "Would you go to the low bidder for brain surgery?" really does apply to auto repair shops as well. Cheap service today may just cost you more in the long run.
