      I hear that Tripodi's have got thee origonal SAR back on the road.
      Have you seen it yet?
      I was talking to a bloke about it the other day, and he told me that they had sold it about 7 and a half years ago, bought it back, ground up re-built it to how they origonally had it. It looks tough, but only saw it in passing, and it wasn't going slow either...

      I believe he is working around Thorpdale area and parts of Sth Gippsland. I have seen it a bit on the Cardinia road area. It flew past me going up hill at Nilma, and he looked loaded. I was told he parks somewhere near KFC in Traralgon. A rumour has it, that the interior has been re-done, by Kenworth, and that it maybe going to Tooradin truck show. A girl at a service station told me. Apparently the Tripodi bloke is easy to get along with, but won't say much about his trucks.

      I just saw the SAR! It looks tough. I wish I had my camera. There was no driver, parked outside of Traralgon. It looks like brand new! I am in ... words cann't discribe!

      I saw that SAR in Traralgon again today. Two guys were polishing it. One of them said they were doing a photo shoot with it somewhere.
      Later in the afternoon, I saw it heading for the Tyres direction. The truck looked magic. I don't know where they were going, but now I know where to find it!

      I have seen both trucks, and there white T600 travel through Warragul, ealy hours on Monday mornings coming from Melb. They light up really well. The SAR has a real tough note to it. Not sure what sports system it has, it's not straight out. I believe the brothers made there own sports system. They sound like they are pretty clued on.
