Margus  trucks?

No actually, they are Scania 111's.... and they are literally EVERYWHERE, especially near the ports. They were the first diesel truck widely available here and were almost all painted orange. They quit importing them in 1981 or 82, but many of them are still working hard here with newer engines out of Scania 112's. Here they are affectionally called "Jacarés" which translates to 'alligator'. . . now they say Jacarés famintos.... which means hungry alligators; because their hoods are always open needing repairs. They have a great reputation and many new owner ops still buy them for starter trucks.
