TEST: Tired of Bilka bumps? So buy your own tank!

Daimler Ferret Scout Car is the name of a tank that you can actually get Danish license plates on. We have a short ride in the strange carriage.

There's only one way down, and that's through the turret. Over the fixed backrest of the driver's seat. The legs must first go down behind the steering wheel, which is at a 45 degree angle away from the driver, Bil Magasinet writes. With a little practice it can be done without hitting your head and spraining an ankle in the process, but it doesn't work for me. I'm still hugging myself as I try to listen to Niels' instructions. The five forward gears are of the preselector type. First you select a gear, then you depress the clutch with a fast and determined thread. Let go of the clutch and the device hums. It succeeds in the first go – completely painless. The big Daimler Ferret moves slowly across the tarmac. Well, I completely forgot to mention that this mastodon chore train actually has license plates on it. Click 'NEXT PAGE' to read on
