Professionals Big Rig Day, Palmerston North (1)

Today I attended the Big Rigs Day at Palmerston North. The day is geared towards kids and all profits go to child cancer sufferers. All events were either $2 or a gold coin donation (that's $1 or$2 for those not familiar with NZ currency).Lots of smiling kids and a lot of smiling big kids too (me included).

This Mack R685RST originally went on the road for Waikato Bitumen in 1973.
In 2009 it was restored to brand new condition by Motor Truck Distributors, who assembled it  in the first place.
Motor Truck Distributors also restored this V8 Superliner in 2012, which originally went on the road for Lynden Transport in 1986
Even the interior of the R series is back to new... is the inside of the Superliner.
