jcb is the best icon ..simple as that. the landrover series 2A 1-ton sits side by side with it, those 2 are the best english icons ever .nothing else comes close. the landrover series 2A 1-ton is a workhorse, people respect you when you on the road, they let you out at junctions, they wave at you and look at you with envy, because you, yes you are driving the car that they all want, you can see the fear in their eyes when you go near them, and they all scuttle out your way, bowing, standing asside to let you past because they know, they cannot compare to you, they accept that they are driving inferior cars and therfor, must be inferior people ? land rover series 2A 1-ton..classic icon, and right next to it, is the big yellow JCB, both, the world recognise instantly, and both, they stand asside for, eyes green with envy as you trundle past at 50 mph, landrover series 2A 1-ton has nothing to prove..and neither has the jcb

The JCB song symbolises all that is great about england, everyones father used to drive one and every person in England remembers sitting on the toolbox as dad drives around, wonderful song, a true great english icon and probably the best song ever written, a true classic english song
