    Friend of mine was mad for a Hino HE years ago. Lovely looking truck

    I thought this was a Hino but sure ye guys might like to see it anyways..It has a lawnmower engine and starts steers runs and tips all by remote. A lot of making in this and real cute if one can say that about a truck. It was on display at Essen classic car show in Dusseldorf.

    Hi cavanguy,you could join IRISHRIGS.COM its a truck forum for Irish truck drivers or people like yourself that are just interested in trucks.There are loads of pictures of new and old Hino's.

    There used to be a 1985 Hino tipper truck (6 wheeler) still earning it's keep in my area until about 2 years ago. It was on ZV plates (not the import ones but the original 1985 Dublin series - I'm pretty sure it was HZV _ _ _ .) Sorry now I never took a pic of it. :(

    88 D 1 was a Hino truck IIRC.

    87 D 1 was a Peugeot 205. It was around this time that people started to say that such a prominent number as "D 1" should be reserved for something more distinguished.

    I could be wrong again, but I think the Lord Mayor got 88 D 1000 for the Millenium that year, I have memories of seeing that reg on a BMW 7 series in Dawson St. a couple of times.
