Volvo F88 (Q782WNL) seen in 1993.
George Dowse of North Shields (Tyne and Wear) ran an impressive fleet of recovery tenders. This Volvo F88 was well known to me as I saw it frequently during the early to middle 90's. It is seen here at the end of the Tyne Tees run at South Shields in 1993. All his machines carried names with impressive artwork. This one was Crazy Horse.
