International Heaven

Vic, who is a keen International fan, recently spent some time in Aussie with some examples of his passion.
When Vic is not in Aus he drives this Inter for Fluidex in NZ.
Vic tried the captain's seat in this 1927 International Speed Truck,
but with no adjustment for seat or column, he said it was a tight fit.
The Speed Truck was capable of a mind boggling 55km/h !
He then climbed aboard this nicely restored 1971 Transtar CO4070 and took it for quite a lengthy drive.
The Transtar has a 320hp Cummins and a 9 speed Fuller Roadranger with the overdrive top gear.
Vic says the gear shift quality was the best he'd ever experienced in a cab-over. A real credit to the restorers.
He also snapped this Mack Valueliner, a model which we never saw in NZ.
