magie b's Truck Run 13 April 2013

magie b's is a hairdressing salon, in Masterton, owned by Christine Brewster who organizes a truck convoy to give rides as a treat for intellectually disadvantaged and autistic members of our community. Christine, and husband Jim, came up with the idea a few years ago and this is the eighth running of this event.Unfortunately Jim has since passed away, but Christine has kept the event going as a memory to her husband and for her love of the big rigs and the delight that all participants get from the occasion.
These snaps were all taken at the Ngaumutawa/Akura Roads intersection.
WLT (Wairarapa Livestock Transport) evolved from the old David Pope fleet. This is their 2011 Scania R620.
Another WLT rig, a 2012 Freightliner Argosy.
Quality Demolition made the effort to come over from Wellington.
Their 2012 Kenworth  T409SAR leads their  2011 K108.
I would think this K108 would be one of the last with the old style "square" grill.
One of very few T2000 Kenwoths in New Zealand.
This 1999 example is followed by McAuley's 2010 Western Star 4864FXC.
More of the McAuley's fleet. A 2010Kenworth T404s and 2011 Freightliner Argosy.
Another McAuley's Argosy. This time an older 2007 model, ahead of an almost brand new  DAF CF85 which went on the road in February this year.
The Burling Kenworths were there in force. this first two in this line are a T404s from 2008 and a T408 model of 2011.
Bobby D's 1996 ERF EC14 still soldiers on, well on the way to its second million kilometres;
and still looking as smart as ever.
Bobby's fleet now also includes this 2012 Freightliner Argosy.
Master Roads showed up with their 2008 Hino FS.
A 2012 Isuzu CYJ460 in Owens livery.
Lemon and Paeroa is a famous brand of soft drink in NZ. They were renowned for having the first two KW Aerodynes in  the country. This 1988 K100E has been restored in the L&P livery.
