Terry Leanne and Ally Cecil headed to the 2016 Castlemaine Truck Show for a break

 

"I’ve been coming here for 6-7 years," says Castlemaine Truck Show attendee Terry Leanne.

"It’s a good break and weekend away," grinned Terry. "I’m not entered in anything, we’ve just come for the weekend, a family weekend."

Terry’s Kenworth is a working truck and is kept busy hauling livestock and hay. The Kenworth is one of three trucks in the fleet that also includes a Kenworth Aerodyne and a little T350.

The T404 has a C15 Caterpillar under the bonnet and has done 1.7 million having had a rebuild at 1.5 million.

"It’s wearing the original paint and despite spending 40 per cent of its time on gravel roads.

"It’s 7km of gravel every morning and evening to get underway. I have owned it for eight years and it’s a beautiful truck.

"I am proud of my job and my rig so this weekend it a great chance to catch up with mates."
