Buying it basically brand new with only 1,300 kilometres on the dash, John says he couldn’t wait to make it shine.

“When we bought it, it already had about $40,000 of extras put on it,” he says.

“We then upped it to 70, spending about another $30,000.

John got some incredible stainless work done, wanting the rig to look “flash and fancy”.

A part of the Turner Express fleet, the big Kenworth T909 is all business during the week and party on the weekends.

“When we get home around lunchtime on Friday, we’ll spend all afternoon and all early hours of Saturday morning polishing and cleaning it up,” John says.

“And then when we get to the show we do it all again.”

The Kenworth is a point of pride for John, loving to see his children get involved with maintaining it as well.

“One of my sons helps to look after it pretty well, and one of my older sons used to drive it.”

“I’m proud.”

The rig has already seen its fair share of shows in its lifetime, heading to Tooradin a couple of times and others.

“The next show will definitely be Alexandra. We are pretty keen to head there.”
