    I prefered the Terrier to the Bedford.
    More comfortable and less noisy.
    Then again I was only a learner. We drove from Clonmel to Tramore at 25mph.
    No slagging the Bedford!!, got my license in one. If you can parallel park a Bedford (no power steering!) everything else comes easy

    Whats the max truck speed got to do with it?
    Mulingar is only about 50 miles. It was a 2.5 hour journey. An hour of that was getting the 2 miles through Lucan.
    As for Dublin - Cork that WAS an all day event. It was not unusual to spent 1-2 hours trying to get through Naas.

    Did the driving course on a Leyland Terrier...lots of go fast but the brakes were always a few seconds behind the oncoming event.
    :confused:
