Merida Bartholomew, the owner of a White Road Boss, couldn’t keep the smile off her face at Dubbo.
Merida had noticed the Road Boss was up for sale at the previous Dubbo Show and pointed it out to husband Ian Bartholomew.
“I told Ian that I wanted it,” she recalls. “A farmer had owned it for the past 15 years and, except for a few mechanical repairs, she is as it was out in the paddock.”
Merida adds that they washed around “three tonnes of dirt” out of it.
With its Cummins 350hp small cam engine and 15-speed Road Ranger, the White has clocked up 760,000km.
“We get around to as many shows as we can,” Merida says. “We love the camaraderie that’s out there, and the like-minded people.”
