The last time I saw whistling dixie was as a cab only in the massam transport yard in Gavin Street Penrose (Auckland), i would love to know what happened to it. I think this was imported in the days of import licensing and overseas funds.

Whistlin' Dixie was destroyed in an accident on the Desert Road. The damage was apparently so bad it was not worth trying to restore the truck.
