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.”
