from Guido Goluke, Dutch translator of Kerouac's On the Road. "I caught this DAF traveller truck on a very cold training run just north of Amsterdam. I have never seen a DAF model like this and suspect it is a converted army vehicle. As the plate on the back suggests, it was used to explore the North Western Territories of Canada. Seems like a cold exercise in a cab without proper windows. And protection against mosquitoes, midges and other nasties either!"
