Traditional Scottish liveries have long featured combinations of tartans, thistles, stags, piper and monograms on a strong background colour.Bonnie Scottish Trucks brings together 231 high quality photos of trucks operated by past and present Scottish companies, small firms and owner drivers who have used their vehicles as a means of attracting the eye of potential customers and as a matter of pride in the presentation of their business. To emphasise the ownership and purpose of the vehicle, the user's name is emblazoned on the front and sides in shade lettering leaving the onlooker in no doubt. Although not exclusive to Scotland, this treatment seems to have been more prolific and has stood the test of time in Scotland.The beautiful vehicles featured in this book were spotted by author, Bill Reid around the country, in towns, in cattle markets, on the road, and anywhere else trucks or lorries can be found. This striking collection will appeal to drivers, road transport enthusiasts and in particular those with an interest in vintage commercial vehicles.
