Mercedes-Benz NG/SK trucks now ready for retirement even in South Africa
Somewhere in the Free State, south of Bloemfontein. We are on our way from Capetown to Johannesburg on the N1, being treated to a stunning sunset in the beautiful landscape. The road ahead is straight and smooth. We stop at a little rest area under a bridge and find a pair of tired looking Mercedes-Benz trucks, sitting peacefully on a flatbed trailer and enjoying the warm light of the low sun. Mind you, the lorries of the New Generation are considered classics by now in Germany and eligible to wear Historic license plates.
