    Hello, Just recently my sisters and I were made aware of this website with the photos of our dad's truck and all the amazing comments about Jack and his rig. To say we were gobsmacked is an understatement. We were always very proud of him, and to us he is a legend, but, to see dad referred to as a legend here is just awesome.
    Dad was of course, of the old school, but, he always had a CB and always talked of getting a sleeper, but, he was a perfectionist and it had to be the right one. Dad had done the truck up including the sleeper before he died - the paint job looked fantastic. Terry had it re-painted when he bought it, and we are thrilled the truck is back home in Traf where it belongs. Keep up the great work. Cheers

    Wow, I did not expect a reply this quick. Thank you. Actually, I'm just learning to use a computer etc. , when I figure out what I'm doing I'll put some photos up as well. I don't know if many of you knew that dad intended to build a new truck from scratch and he would have. He had everything he needed from chassis rails, cab, bonnet, engine etc. etc. And we've still

  15. sir jack-kerry 45 months ago | reply

    got it all, most anyway. We sold the engine to a bus company in Melb. round about the time we sold the truck to Terry. But it is all still there. Guess we had better make a move on that sometime !! When we were sorting through Dad's treasures, we came across a pair of remote controlled side mirrors. I didn't know such a thing existed, but of coarse, I married a farmer who is not mechanically minded. I've really enjoyed checking out all the photos, brings back a lot of memories,Especially seeing the shots taken in Traf. Actually, I will be back in our old hometown, very briefly for a school reunion lunch at the pub soon. Looking forward to it. Cheers
