    It’s that time of year, and there are some new trucks on the road, with new names on…

    No wonder the south suffers with traffic problems when it snows, all bar 3 gritters are in Scotland 😁

    That is exactly why I like to buy cars that come from down south.

    What the gritters cost the government they get back in taxes on new cars in Scotland for sure.

    Gritters guarantee 10-15 year life span on a normal car because it’ll be rotten by then

    lol @trail_rat. Last car managed 18 years and a bit more I think. Bodywork was in pretty good nick.

    The previous Golf, though, was in getting sorted by the guy I sold it to — mechanic asked him if it had been driven into the sea, the engine bay was just a block of rust. Not quite, but had survived many years in Aberdeen and the N~E.

    Plougher O’ Scotland and For Your Ice Only are my local two.
    Kind of disappointed we don’t have Gritty Gritty Bang Bang.

    One of these blooming things did a really scary close pass on me the other night! I complained to the local council, albeit through gritted teeth.
