Australia's most iconic Truck Photographer Warren Noakes Passed away Yesterday.
Whilst You may not have Known Him.. We all knew His Photos. He was entirely selfless about sharing them for all to see..
I have a few regrets in Life ...Not taking more pictures through my working life is one of them.. is one of them..
Thanks to Warren We can all get a taste of what Aussie trucking was like back in the 60's 70's 80's & even Today..

.Yes how sad.......unfortunately , too many people from that era are passing on........
Warren certainly left a wealth of info from the day that should , hopefully ,enrich
future generations that are interested in old transport days and ways.........

Hayseed . Thanks for putting up this link. Spent the last couple of days going through Warrens pictures. Great stuff. Good to see so much of his work.
Warren has been sharing his photos long before the internet.
In about 1971 he loaned his work mate, my brother in law his fantastic slide collection of trucks and I had some copied which I still have.
and thanks to Warren they are now on the internet for everyone to enjoy.

I think they were powered by a V6 53 GM. I remember seeing this International at the drivers home in Corrimal ( Wollongong) around the late 60"s
