Today I had to go to check out Phillip Mathie's latest creation. Most of you would have seen his other 2 Whites in a copy of the Vintage Truck magazine some time ago. Well today I had to check his W6 for Historic Registration. Needless to say, It passed.

It certainly is Paul. I was dribbling like a new born while I was checking it out.

The sad part is that Philip is blind and can't fully appreciate the final outcome for himself. In saying that, he feels his way around the trucks and points out things that I would have missed. Even small things, like how they made bolts to resemble rivets in the rear cross member, ( you can't pick them), the operation of the PTO. He is able to climb in and out of the cab and start the truck

He is truly an amazing man who loves his trucks and wants to preserve them for others to admire.

Phillip ought to be an inspiration to those of us, who aspire to the same lofty heights, but rarely attain it. Well done!

Look at the latest in mirror technology. The external mirrors appears to now have been replaced with cameras. I saw this Linfox Mercedes Benz leaving the holding yard at Fairy Meadow. It is painted up in Linfox Colors. I think it would take me a very long time to get used to not looking outside the truck to check your mirrors.

Camera technology can be quite helpful but they don't give you the same view as a mirror. Looking at a two dimensional screen does not give you any depth perception so you are more reliant on the the beeping sensors to tell you how close you are to something, and moving your head around doesn't change the camera angle, so its no use leaning forward bit to try and make out what's hiding behind that tree.
