Transporter Of Delight

With apologies for the preponderance of trucks in recent posts (there’ll be a car soon, I promise!), I’m afraid I just couldn’t resist this. The elf who brought it was completely resistable, mind…

It’s a 1953 Alfa Romeo race transporter, with body by Bartoletti. What’s really impressive about this beauty is the substance within – proper Technic supercar stuff like suspension on all wheels, steering, engine and all that jazz. It’s not often truck builders go to all that trouble. Thomas Graafland is the one who did.

Quick question: It is an Alfa, and therefore absolutely lovely; but what’ll pick it up when it breaks down?
