My first upload in this section. Photograph was taken on our trip through central Turkey earlier this year 2014. In the agricultural area these trucks were everywhere, like on the wrong side of Dual Carriageways, in the middle of Dual Carriageways, with or without trailers. Three men in the front with unknown numbers of Women and children in the back!!
This one I managed to get the car off the Dual Carriageway enough for the wife to feel safe and ran back to it!
Italian designed Lombardini diesel engine, made under licence in Turkey by Celik Montaj a.s. - they do pick-ups , motorcycles also Skoda vans under licence. Now also in with Isuzu for trucks. The Engine drives the vehicle, and from the front pulley can drive water pumps and other equipment on the farm. Body is tough and they seem to have little rust. A vehicle for the job at an affordable price!! Must be hundreds of them all over the place, mainly in front of you coming the wrong way up the Dual Carriageway!!
