bedford wwii vintage truck quiz answer
Answer: The answer is BEDFORD vehicles, manufactured by Vauxhall Motors. As a young kid, in the 1980's and even in 1990's, I have seen many of the Bedford trucks, being used mainly for carrying soil used for earth-filling or bricks for construction purposes. Mos of these trucks were of WWII vintage. Even today, one may come across Bedford trucks in rural India, while in Pakistan, its a certainty, to be found on highways. An urban legend associated with these trucks was that the drivers had to put the vehicle in back-gear instead of applying the brakes, to get the trucks to stop immediately. As with most urban legends, most probably, it is untrue!
