Another classic from 20 years of TG mag: Hungary's herdsmen confront TG's heavily modded Toyota Hilux...

Still, for the moment, we are simply a pointlessly robust snail wending across Europe, our house upon our back. The Hilux bellows its dieselly way along endless motorways, mpg down into the mid-teens (parachute of a roof arrangement), and thousands of miles pass beneath our gently humming wheels. It is a wonderful, if slightly uneventful, slog. Eventually we pass Vienna, skim the border of Slovakia – Bratislava definitely being the wrong way – and head towards Győr in Hungary. Which is where things start getting interesting.
