    Thanks Matt=yeah John Jervis just before he sold out to Towns and was reading about it in Owner Driver and by the sounds of it old John kind of regretted it i think -That Disc you found is that your own DVD is it Matt ? That would be awesome sure were kings of Gippsland back then sounds like you have been looking into the archives their Matt thanks Mate

    I read that too Craig and agree. He had a decent fleet of KW K100s, all as nice as this one. Mind you he is missing his centre bullet light on the roof.

    Nice looking cabover , as I watch your photo's I try to see the differances in there to here ! I am impressed by the amount of these cabovers you have there ! You see they quit making them over here & not many are left on our highways . A few people have restored a few & some kept there old one around as yard ornaments !

    Thanks Don =Wow mate thats unreal i cant believe that they stopped making them over here they are still very Popular especially with the big Companys they seem to go for the Areodynes and the new K-108 big cabs are very impressive when done up nicely I Wonder why they stopped making them over there when i was a kid a long time ago and i used to read Overdrive when i could get it and there were some Classic Cabovers in there i just fell in love with them from that point on i would be devastated if they stopped them here but there is no sign of that happening as they sell heaps of them thanks for info Don
