We took the Volvo with our 38 foot 1976 Freighter trailer. The trailer has just been to Harris Automation Engineering in Dandenong and Victorian Truck Painting, also in Dandenong and it looks fantastic – now all it needs is a new wooden floor and we can then actually use it.
Stephen Corstorphan's Diamond T. This truck was the second best looking truck on display, our Volvo being the best, naturally. If we were going to start collecting American trucks, then this is what I would get.
Ken Whitworths newly restored fire engine. It's an Acco butterbox. It looked fantastic.
The J-model Bedford belongs to Norm Nettleton and the International CD1840 belongs to Wayne Henry.
This 1962 AB International belongs to John Denholm. The Atkinson is an early 1970s model with a 8V71 GM. There were three Classic Truck prizes and John and his Inter won one one of them. The other prizes were won by John Ferguson and his KB6, with his Ampol drums on the back and Max Devlin's 1928 Dodge, both pictured below.
Shown below are some of the other trucks and commercial vehicles on display at Cora Lynn.
