You ain't gonna find much of these today. Those are a rare and kinda oldtimer trucks in rest of Europe...... but....... in Bosnia and Serbia these are super modern and among all trucks the most popular ones. We are speaking here about MAN F90/F2000 series produced from 1990-1998. Actualy, the model from 1998. is the most sucessfull model of MAN ever produced and by far one of the most reliable trucks of all european manufacturers. The romance is in gauges and springs rather than computers and air pillows. Economical situation and police "coffee" allows the companies to drive these old trucks without technical competence and mechanical care certification and you ain't gonna find a fully working MAN of this kind. But still these beauties are rolling like a young boys..... but.... every truck has it's own sound. One has a broken air filter and is roaring against decibels, second is "crying" due to turbine mallfunction, third is allmost going to knock the pistons out and so on. Every one has it's own "unique" sound newerthless all of those are same kind of trucks..... funny i think... :p

There are a fair few MAN on the road here to, but mainly as 8x4 trucks with trailers , many are former milk tankers from before the Volvo FH series took over in popularity for the NZMP/Fonterra fleet.

These ones are Euro 2 or Euro 3 so to go outside Balkans to EU with them is not profitable due to higher ecology taxes and so on. But this is the beast of the truck and parts are easy to find and are cheap. 80% of them are logging trucks, in 6x6 editions. There are a curtainsiders and box trailers too but working only inside Bosnia and Serbia

yeop. I went looking for some other information and this was one of those that the search dredged up.

It's not even in the top 100 for consideration as it was started less than 2 years ago

No, what you do is find one from 2007 & make a post tagging krelithous & mentioning a Toyota Prius. Wait til he replies then delete your own.
