Few pics from truck parade, Invercargill, New Zealand

Some nice looking trucks.

Are those screens pretty much standard equipment on Australian trucks?

Thanks Jim, yep there were some great looking rigs at the show. Sorry can't really answer your question re the screens - I'm not in the industry (just have an interest and enjoy photographing them).

p.s. These trucks are in New Zealand (not Australia) although being Kenworths they were possibly built in the Australian factory (if that's what you meant).

Cheers

That's what I ment.

Those K108s are sweet! Don't see many K100s over here any more. Although there is a company down in the Utica area that has a fleet of K100s. They deliver pool water.

Nice ! I do prefer the bonneted trucks, the mesh grill is to stop stone being flicked up and smashing the windscreen,

Man you guys have nice trucks! You still have the KW cabover! I had this idea of buying a K104 conversion cab from Auslowe and converting that into a North American phantom version...

Great minds think alike!!! I've had that conversation with myself, as well...

I thought maybe the screens were to protect the lights if you nailed a roo.

Didn't think Kangaroo's were native in New Zealand .... in Austalia they do have what they call Roo' bars fitted to the trucks

The screens are definitely for gravel protection... There were times I wished that I'd had them on my trucks here in The States...
