EUROPEAN OFF ROAD TRUCKS/VEHICLES
|Occasionally we get offers of various off road vehicles from manufacturers most buyers in North America have never heard of. We will offer them here along
with information regarding the more common examples in the market. This is really on a sampling as there are other manufacturers but often they are rare and
hard to find such as older makes like Hannomag, Saviem, Simca. When we started nearly no one had heard of Tatra trucks, today it is one of the most
respected heavy off road movers in the world.
PLEASE NOTE NOT ALL VEHICLES CAN BE IMPORTED TO THE NORTH AMERICAN MARKET
