Yep, it's more trucks from the 80s, 90s and 00s again.
This Scammell S26 of Freightways Express parked outside Copthorne Solway Park Motor Inn in Masterton has a fairly plain paint job, but lots of extras: chrome vertical exhaust stack, aluminium wheels and tanks, chrome bumper and front panel over grille and air-horns on top of cab. I'm not sure what the unusually shaped objects on the B-train are.

Schdroski Transport displayed this MAN at a truck show at Hutt Park in the Wellington area.

"Deputy Dog" was a 1987 Mack Super-Liner R722RS of Clive Taylor Transport, again this is at Hutt Park..

Hutt Park again for this Scania R142M of Retko Haulage.

Three axle Scammell S26 with three axle trailer and a load of beer at Copthorne Solway Park. Unfortunately not my favourite brand (Lion Brown that is, not Scammell)

A 1988 Nissan Concrete Special was a model developed by the NZ Nissan importers for the concrete business. Seen here in Capital Concrete livery.

MacAuley's Transport yard in Masterton is the setting for this 1994 Peterbilt 362 of Equipment and Transport Leasing.

A Cochrane's Transport Freightliner Argosy is about to spend the night at Masterton Motor Lodge.

Contrasting colours of truck and trailers on this 2000 DAF XF530 at Day's Bay near Wellington

Before Premier Bacon operated their stunningly liveried Hino 700, they owned this 1999 Hino FS with minimal sign-writing.

NZ's Mack importers. Motor Truck Distributors completely restored this 1960 Mack B615RS as a promotional exercise.

John Lockley operates many unusual American rigs. Here is his 1991 International Navistar 8200 at Petone.

A 1992 FLA Freightliner of Kevey's Transport, with just the sheets lashed to its B-train's decks, rests at Seaview.

Also at Seaview is this Scania and trailer of New Zealand Couriers.

The Brett Morris International Transtar 4670 was quite an impressive rig when it hit the road in 1991.

Great pics mate and what a great site.

I love the pomie trucks from the 70's and 80's.

Do you have any Road Air or RFL pics, especially Leyland/AEC ergo's?

Cheers Jamie

Thanks for the comments Jamie. They are always appreciated. The numbers tell me there are quite a few people looking at my site, but not many commentors. I will have a look through my photos and see if I've got anything that you specifically like. I have a few Rodair and RFL photos, but I think they are from a bit later era....Trev
