Some More Trucks from the Past

As you know I'm virtually to the end of my own old photos, but I've had a look through them and here are some that may be repeats, but taken from different angles. My apologies if you have seen any of these before.
Two shots of the Freightways Superliner that took an America's Cup hull around NZ on a promotional tour.
A Mercedes, Foden, Internationals and several Mitsubishis line up with a couple of Kenworths in the Burling Transport fleet. Nowadays, I think it's a 100% Kenworth.
These T112MC Scanias with set forward front axle were developed for BP in NZ to meet axle loading and axle spread legislation. This example is unloading its liquid cargo at Wagg's in Masterton
A David Pope Foden heading through Mangatainoka.
RMD's fleet consisted mostly of Kenworths, but there was at least one Western Star.
This photo dates from 2001.
Premier Bacon's Hino had smart livery, but unfortunately was fairly short lived due to changes in supermarket distribution which made it preferable for Premier to use outside transport companies for their deliveries.
I think that trailer is still in existence wearing the same artwork.
The Hino went to PTL, but I'm not sure if they still have it.
Curtain side B-train in NZ Couriers colours pulled by Freightliner Argosy.
This Scania must have been one of the last in the livery of Europa fuels.
