Retired with "damages" in october 2014. This term is slightly less severe than a total writeoff, but nevertheless spells the end in most cases. It's quite rare that trucks end up with declarations of "damaged" or "written off", even when totally destroyed (by fire etc.) This has something to do with the tax system: for smaller vans, there's a tax refund in case of a vehicle getting written off, but this doesn't apply to trucks, so there's not much of a reason to make the assessment, except that it would be practical for history records.

Residue of letters left from previous owner shows the initials "G. F."

Going up the steep hill leading sw out of Aarhus past Viby and Stautrup. Underpowered and/or heavily loaded trucks often struggle here.

Tip: to locate trucks of particular interest to you, check my collections page, "truck collection" (www.flickr.com/photos/lavulv/collections/72157684190396672/ ) - here you will find all trucks organized in albums, by haulier (with zip-codes), year, brand and country.

Retirement age for trucks: many used trucks are offered for sale on international markets. If sold to a foreign buyer, this will not be listed in the danish motor registry, so a "retired" truck may or may not have been exported. In other words, the "retirement age" only shows the age, at which the truck stopped running on danish license plates.
