More from Rocklea.

The rest of Paul's shots from the Rocklea Truck Show.
A couple of Mack CF fire trucks and a Ultra-liner.
Late 30s or early 40s AEC.
I can't quite read the model name. Majestic, Mercury or something else I haven't thought of.
One of those big fronted Americans that I like.
Mack Super-liner with long range tanks, bull-bar, twin intake and exhaust stacks and a large sleeper box.
What more could a man want?
Paul's silhouette, with his stetson on, also visible in the picture.
Mack's B series was a popular truck in its day.
Its rounded profile and sloping two piece windshield mimicked cars of the period.
This tandem drive example has many extras.
Western Star, International, T-Line Internationals with the extended cab which were usually marketed as Atkinsons.
I assume the Inter second from left is a Transtar. Its 4 headlamps and dividing strip down the grille could get it mistaked for a White Road Boss.
Another B series Mack, this time with single drive.
Two old Leylands look to be of similar age, but note the different steering wheel positions and Paul's outline again.
