Gary Spark

Big Rigs - - TRUCKIN' ON THE BORDER WITH DAVID VILE -

HAV­ING a 24-hour break be­fore un­load­ing his trailer of ba­nanas at the Wool­worths Bar­nawartha dis­tri­bu­tion cen­tre was Gary Spark, of Townsville.

Driv­ing a Volvo FH 16 with a B-dou­ble fridge van trailer set, Gary had loaded out of In­n­is­fail ear­lier in the week, mak­ing his way down to the NSW/Vic­to­rian bor­der via Char­ters Tow­ers and Moree.

Gary drives the Volvo for S&G Trans­port of Bris­bane, haul­ing pro­duce and gen­eral freight up and down the east coast com­ment­ing: "They are great to work for, run good gear and keep it looked af­ter".

Kick­ing off his truck-driv­ing ca­reer 35 years ago in a Ley­land Beaver and orig­i­nally a Vic­to­rian, Gary has pretty much cov­ered all of Aus­tralia from the cabin of a truck, and looks for­ward to catch­ing up with some old mates next month in Queens­land at the Re­frig­er­ated Road­ways driv­ers’ re­union. "Those were the good old days," he said.
