Greetings. Werkhorse is doing a cracking job. A lot of names that you don't see anymore with the fridge trucks, the MT V12 instamatic was taken in 74 at Detroits and the SLR photo at Border Village in 74 aswell- wasn't a lot there except a servo with 2 x 4-71 gensets and some dirty great big signs for the SA-WA border. Cain's Atkinson was taken in 74, Doyle's KW-K at Gepps Cross probably 75. The Schrappels SAR is the sister to the 8-92 SAR, the sad looking Foden at the SydneyHT in 72 or 73, the Fiat was in 73, CJ Dean MAN and the Crusaders in 74, same with Gerry Goodinson's green ERF- I was told he went from being an owner-driver to selling trucks- Kenworths I believe. The green SLR photo of the Crusader was Pascoe Sgro- he may have spent time in a 650 MAN for Ipec before buying some ear muffs. That's enough chat. Stay tuned.

Great photos Werk The photo of the Fiat image 186884 bought back some memories Bruce Panucci had two ,Think he bought them from Dolphin Transport when they went bust if i remember right big engine for the day 260 hp 12 litre i think , he never kept them long nothing but trouble his head mechanic Max Duffy hated them called them Wogzidines he was a real international man AB 190 Transtars DCF's DCO's Acco's .The only thing the drivers liked about them was the big cab ,big enough for a bed , old bruno would say trucks were meant to drive not sleep in .Most of his trucks were day cabs no sleepers
I keep looking at the smashed up Foden. It looks like it has a bonnet.
If so it must be one of the 2 Fodens that were made by a Western Australia Foden dealer who modified a cab over Foden by moving the cab back and making the bonnet. I think these were for Casgoyne Trading Company.
I think a bonneted Foden ended up at PR Roberts at Penrith.
