Sadly we can’t now say that Tachoblog is ‘by Royal Appointment’ but we do have news of the latest issue of Classic And Vintage Commercials from its Editor Ted Connolly.
This beautiful bonneted Mercedes was spotted and snapped for Tachoblog in Prichsenstadt over the weekend.
Oi! Stop messing around and put that that Seddon Atkinson back together again now says Tachoblog!
Given the age of this picture and the fact that Tachoblog was sent it by Ted Connolly, editor of Classic and Vintage Commercials magazine, then we’re not looking at a case of mindless dismantling.
Last week we reported on Guy Loveridge’s purchase of a 1958 Guy Vixen. Well Guy’s now seen the Guy and is getting things moving.

Monday again…no need to jump into the week just yet, join Tachoblog as we take a look at a selection of early promotional films that show the vehicles that were used to carry seemingly impossible loads.
Before Tachoblog went on our recent break, we had an email from Chris Campbell who happens to be the National Manager, Scotland for Skills for Logistics (SfL).
