Tui Brewery Show and Shine.

The annual truck Show and Shine was held at Tui Brewery, Mangatainoka today. I took the bike for a ride and called in.
Supreme Automotive Refinishers of Masterton displayed their promotional Ford Model A.

T model Scania is an 11 litre, 6 cylinder built on the "H"chassis.
This is a heavy duty chassis usually used for logging or heavy haulage.

Neat old Bedford with an appropriate stock crate from the period.

Smart W model Kenworth.

International T-line.

R series Mack.

Well presented twin turbo Mitsubishi.

Menefy Volvos and a Freightliner.

Menefy Macks.

A Menefy R series Mack with V8 power.

McAuleys from Masterton.

Garritys from Greytown.

It will be interesting to see how this Chinese truck bears up over time.
Don't underestimate the Chinese, they are learning fast, just as the Japanese did when they began selling to the rest of the world.

Kenworths: 1998 T480 and 2015 T409.

A mix of European makes from A.W.E. McNicol.

A couple of fine Kenworths from Buckeridges of Dannevirke.

Freightliner, Kenworth and Scania from Martinborough Transport.

Two from WLT, Masterton.

Tri-axle rear end on this Clive Taylor Mack.

Beautiful 1940 Ford pick-up among  the Clive Taylor fleet....and a future driver on the running board.

Clive Taylor Macks.

Two Kenworths and a Western Star from Halls.

5 axle Hino.

Scanias from Pahiatua's Wolland Contracting.

Just like Scania, Iveco utilizes the cab over cab for their conventional models.

Mack, Western Star.

A mixture from the L.G.Anderson fleet, including an older ERF.

In all vehicles (cars, trucks, motorcycles) occasionally  a model is introduced that stands out from the rest. The original Mack Superliner was one, the International Lonestar is another.

 Beale Trucking  from Mangatainoka (just along the road from the brewery) is a fast growing fleet.
