Boss buyer

Deals on Wheels - - Truck Shows -

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.”
