And Some More Trucks !

Nupin's "Anteater" must have been one of the first of this model Kenworth in the Wellington area.

A display for Road Runner Trailers used a Freightways "long-nose" Nissan under the front of their curtain side B-train.
These Nissans never sold in great numbers in NZ. The cab-over models were more popular.

Dominion Breweries trucks were always well presented, and personally I preferred this red livery to the later yellow. This single drive Isuzu is parked at their Mangatainoka Brewery, the home of Tui beer.

Slightly blurry shot of three Kenworths of RMD at Mount Maunganui.

Old No. 1. Gleesons of Pahiatua own this carefully restored Chevrolet.

T model Scanias were not often seen in NZ as rigids.
Transport Wairarapa's T112M.

C.E.Daniell's mill in Masterton carted timber with this NZ model Ford.
Really a re-badged Hino.

6 wheeler D series Ford tipper and trailer motors along State Highway 1 on the shores of Lake Taupo.
My Suzuki GS850 to the right of picture.

A flash of light on the lens not shielded from the sun, but still a picture worth sharing.
A Kirbys (of Nelson in the South Island)  Fuso furniture rig heads south from Waiouru (in the central North Island) with Mount Ruapehu (the North Island's tallest)  in the background

Look carefully and you will see this F series Mack has been fitted with a high-rise sleeper.

Roadair and RFL were the two big players in the refrigerated transport scene in the 1980s.
This a Roadair F12 Volvo with three axle self-steer trailer. The Volvo is an Australian model with its trilex wheels, aluminium sun visor, flat mirrors and round aluminium fuel tank.
