There are some egotistical idiots up here that have NOT figured out that all the bling does not generate any more revenue!!!! BUT does cost more to maintain..

To keep it in context, the number plate on the vehicle, in the opening post, has been confirmed as Dutch, pre 1932.
Bling wasn't even a word then. :lol: In Australia it was almost unheard of to tart up a truck, until the '70s, heck, a lot of them were unloved, unwashed, unsafe and only treated as a tool.
Subjectivity, bling can demonstrate a pride of ownership and be indicative of regular maintenance. If that deters unwanted scrutiny, it's an investment. :whistle:

The light bar is totally different to that on a Studie.

If you look at the building, it's stone with a creeper growing on it.

I'd be suggesting the photo was taken in France or Belgium. (or in that region)

This is one facet I could not reconcile, either.
