This particular lady (truckers always refer to lorries as she because "like women they can be temperamental") was new in 2000 making her the oldest member of that particular fleet. She's covered a fair distance in that time - the odometer had over a million km on the clock, measured in km because of EU regulations. However due to her age, she has a Euro 2 engine and is therefore excluded from the London low emission zone. I don't mind that though because it means her driver passes my way a little more often. My invitation into the Globetrotter cab was a revelation, it's like entering a very small caravan once you've negotiated the really steep steps up from pavement level. It's a pity there isn't a more convenient folding stairway - especially for girls in short skirts. Although for journeys the cab sits and sleeps 2, on social occasions three can be accommodated with ease on the lower bunk which is a virtually full sized single bed. Admittedly there isn't much room to maneouver but that just adds to the fun!
For the technically minded she has a 12 litre engine, inline 6 cylinder 420bhp intercooler & turbo.
