i remember that being shown on T.V, he had not long passed his HGV2 at the time and loved driving trucks for fun. I read an article about his great interest in cars and he made a film for T.V about the ' Bentley Boys ' in which he played the part of Tim Birkin the man famous for racing supercharged ' Blower Bentley's ' in the 1930s.

Didn't know about the 'Bentley Boys' - will have a look for that.
Isn't R.A. well known for piling up his McLaren F1?

I laughed at the part where Rowan almost breaks his teeth on a Yorkie bar. Here's the real Yorkie man: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DCeQNPJtMWY

The music track to this advert was released as a single and I bought a copy! (Sad eh?) It was pressed in brown vinyl as a "collectors item" but even more rare are ones pressed in brown vinyl, but are the same shape as a chunk of Yorkie. Sadly, I didn't manage to get one of those.

Pretty darn sad coastie.

I got a free record of "I'm a Happy DAF Truck Driver" in an early '70s edition of Truck magazine. One of those floppy 7" singles.

Still got it somewhere

I'd forgotten all about that one! Many thanks for reminding me. Come to that, I'd forgotten all of those!

Doesn't sound much like a truck to me!
