Moun­tain Macks

Deals on Wheels - - Truck Shows -

Bob Miller is a Mack man through and through, and he had a cou­ple on show at Claren­don.

He bought his first Mack –a B model – in 1974, and worked it on in­ter­state with Vaughn Trans­port.

“I sold it to a friend in ’76 and he used it for haul­ing coal up around Lith­gow,” Bob says. “He passed away in 2005 and I bought it back from his es­tate. It had been in a shed for 20 years.

“The Flint­stone I bought three years ago. It was orig­i­nally a crane truck and we put a bunk on it, and it’s on its first out­ing here to­day.

Bob, who lives just up the hill at Val­ley Heights in the Blue Moun­tains, had a few tip­pers on the road dur­ing his truck driv­ing years.

“The liv­ery on my Macks is from the Valiant S mod­els of the ’60s,” he says. “To­day, all of my three boys – John, Barry and James – drive trucks, and now I drive a school bus.”
