hey that for me ,shifting on the left....I'm left handed

albert, me too shifting a manual gear box for me was a though process for the first couple hours. The auto made it easy.

Sure is! Paul

Paul, also on the CF Nigel put two air snorkels up behind the cab which helped a lot and dual exhaust. Next is a fridge and generator.

I've always enjoyed driving on the left side of the road, although it's probably not as exciting when everyone else is doing it too. :whistling:

Jim it is a little alarming at first especially for the passenger in the front seat. When approaching a side road and a car coming. Takes a little while to get use to that!

Mate fantastic I thought someone had been playing silly buggers with the camera it is always good to see people on the correct side of the road :D

Sounds like you had a great trip and saw lots of good stuff and met some great people all went to plan by the sounds of it

That bridge is a very good thing due to economy.

I would much more prefere that combo than neither bridge at all.

So if you need to pass a car in front of you you look at the traffic light.

And if you doesn't you'll go back.

But if there's a loc... Do you go back very fast?

Tim, have a smooth and safe way back home!

Paul had an awesome time and boy, Kiwis like their beer! I think I could get the handle of driving on the left side too!

Vlad this was the first duel bridge I've ever seen and it does make perfect sense, as far as the train....Hope ones reflects are good!

Never saw that additional wrap-around dash panel in a CF before.....

1958FWD could you explain the extra panel? Not familiar with that. Thanks!

In America, the vehicle with the biggest tires wins. :D

The curved dash panel to the left of the steering wheel.....has 3-4 gauges and a bunch of switches.....USA CF Macks do not have this. Dashboard is completely flat. Was always kind of a pain in the ass for the driver to get to most of the switches, in most cases it was the ignition/battery switches and the switches for the emergency lights.
