Hard-core lorry

Vabis (1.5 tonnes) was Swedish Post's first ever lorry... and the last model of the company founded in 1891.

This picture was taken in Gothenburg in 1911 just before the merger of Vabis and Scania.

Imagine driving such a car - wooden rims, low-profile tyres (we mean really low-profile), no front windshield, kerosene-powered lights…

As one American football player stated some time ago, "it’s not a game for little girls."
