This book is a tribute to ERF's world-class long-hauler, especially the Middle East examples, and to those who drove them. What did the ERF NGCs look like? How well did they perform? Where did they venture? What were they like to drive and to live in? And where did they stand in ERF's contribution to Britain's place in the history of the TIR-trail? Left-hand drive ERFs were, perhaps, one of the more beguiling elements in the exotic pageantry of 1970s Middle-East trucking - and this particular model earned a reputation for excellent performance in the mountains, a theme that runs throughout this book. The vision of these magnificent machines hauling articulated road-trains over the Saudi mountains in Trans-Arabia livery is a treat.,
