John Mitchell ‘Grange Rick Ferrari’.
Rick Ferrari, who ‘specialises’ in collecting vehicles operating in named fleets, has been a member of Lorryspotting since October 1999.
Haulier John Mitchell of Grangemouth, has always run a named fleet, prefixing vehicle names with the word ‘Grange’, after the Burn from which the town derives its name. For several years now, a different naming theme has been used annually by Mitchell’s, with themes and suggestions chosen by Rick, 2023’s theme being Scottish Fauna.
Imagine Rick’s surprise when, to recognise his comprehensive researches over several years, Iain decided that the first new vehicle of the 2023 batch, MAN TGX 6x2 tu, SN23 ZGE, (no 651), would carry the name ‘Grange Rick Ferrari’.
