Living the lifestyle at the Koroit truck show

 

Dave Clark, this year driving a 2004 Kenworth T650, was attending his third Koroit truck show.

The T650 belongs to earthmoving company Mibus Brothers of Portland.

A second Mibus Kenworth, a near-new T909 driven by Mark Showler, was also on show.

"It’s a family business that employs 60 people," Dave says.

"They’re a great mob to work for."

Dave has been with Mibus for three years and was looking forward to a great day, although rain on the trip over to Koroit took the shine off the truck’s appearance.

To date, the T650 has clocked up almost 900,000km.

"We stood it down for a week over Christmas and I pulled the tanks, straps and wheels off and gave it a good buff up," he explains.

Dave believes the Koroit show is a credit to the organisers, and is getting bigger each year. Plus he was keen to show the Kenworth off, even though it was his day off.

"Truck driving is a passion, not a job," he says.

"It’s a lifestyle for sure."
