Changing Hues

I’ve covered a lot of kilometres in the Magnum now and I have enjoyed the ride. We’ve explored a lot of France and crossed the Alps to take a delivery to Venezia, returning on a direct run from Salzburg to Bordeaux.

All that long distance driving gave me time to think up a name for this truck – and no I didn’t think Wall’s Ice Cream would be a good choice! However, I did think about my favourite French wines. So she has become ‘Un Verre de Corbières’. The only issue with that is her colour – so we’ve had a respray into a glorious metallic red. I thought the rosette would have to go but I think it actually looks quite classy with the new shade so I kept it!

    1. Thanks Cee – Screenshots from Euro Truck can include some very nice vistas. I’m looking forward to the rescaled US map in American Truck – should be some more great country views to capture 🙂
