TK Bedford rounding the Devil's Elbow on the old Mt. Barker Road. This corner had a reputation for being a roll over corner as it almost turned back on itself to get round and if you took it at just 2kph above the 10kph speed you could end up on your side or if your rig wasn't loaded right the same thing. This truck belonged to Coca Cola of Adelaide and is on the down track heading back to the city, the Elbow has been done away with now and from where this photo was taken from I would now get run down by traffic heading down the new road thru the new Heysen Tunnel ( pronounced Hisen ) it has cut out about 5kms of slow winding road.
