About us

Well the GMC AFKWX-353 was something my brother and I had always wanted in the Collection so when this one first appeared for sale in Wheels and Tracks we made contact with the seller Jean Ziger from Luxembourg.  This was pre-email so we had to resort to the old methods and put pen to paper.  In November 1991, we received a reply with a black and white photo enclosed.  We were really keen so a deposit was paid whilst we made preparations to go to Luxembourg to drive it home.  In those days we were always flat out.  We had a Mack No2 and a Dodge 6x6 under restoration so time was always tight.  Finally we were ready to make the trip.  We took a new battery, some tools, rope and fuel with some other basic necessities.
