CC Outtakes: A Scania Lover Lives Here – And A Minuscule Gas Station To Boot

My brother and his wife are touring Sweden right now. They sent me a few pictures which were heavily Curbside Classic-related, so here they are.

Three Scania conventional trucks from the seventies, one of them already blending in with the landscape.

Although the conventional truck gradually became a dying breed in Europe from the early sixties onwards, these Scanias still sold very well throughout the continent.

Back then they were by far the most successful conventional heavy-duty truck and tractor unit (with a 4×2, 6×2 or 6×4 chassis). The biggest engine available in this model was Scania’s 11 liter inline-six, like in the 111 above.

Fully operational, this rather compact Gulf gas station. It may be small, but it is great!
