Two polished Kenworths were among the best trucks to hit the Castlemaine Truck Show in 2016

 

Dion Pateras and Dom Greco were polishing their respective trucks when Trade Trucks caught up with them.

Dion had brought along a T950 with a 4.3 million kms on the clock and Dom had brought a Kenworth T404ST both owned by Pateras Interstate Transport.

"Six to seven years ago, it was given a paint job but still has the original chassis, paint, diffs and drive guards," stated Dion.

"It is very straight and never been over. It doesn’t owe us anything. It’s a family heirloom, this one."

The T950 is one of 35 trucks in the Pateras fleet which is based in Werribee South. The Cummins N14 that sits under the bonnet has been changed over three times. The T950 is still running up to Brisbane and according to Dion is still going strong.

"It’s the one truck show that I make the effort for. I’d miss a day’s work to get to this show, it’s a great weekend!"
