Wellington Truck Show



Wellington Truck Show was held last weekend at Trentham Park. Entry was by gold coin donation, with all money going to the Life Flight Trust, who operate rescue helicopters and air ambulances.
This Freightliner with 4 axle low-loader looked very smart in blue and silver.
Alpha Specialised Movers had two of their hydraulic lifting trailers stacked up to lift this small house some 6 metres in the air.
Auto Despatch displayed two new Cats, but unfortunately the overhead cars shaded the cabs for the photo.
L.G Anderson also showed a Cat as well as this impressive Freightliner 8 wheeler and 4 axle semi.
Quality Demolition showed that demolition trucks don't have to look like a demolition site with these matching Kenworths.  
I've got a soft spot for Mack Super-liners and this example did nothing to change that opinion.
Hooker's Western Star wasn't lacking in shine with that massive front bumper, chrome stacks, air cleaners, bug deflector and headlamp "eye-lashes".
Stock Transport Limited is now known simply as STL. A Kenworth T950  with narrow sleeper.
