Green ma­chine

With his wife and two young daugh­ters, Josh Arnold rolled up in an im­pres­sively re­fur­bished bright green Ken­worth T900, owned by War­ren Ah­ern.

“He’s re­placed ev­ery­thing ex­cept six bolts on the chas­sis,” Josh says. “It’s got Ken­worth 8 bag, rewired it front and back, put new fuel tanks on, stain­less, put the sec­ond stack on it, and put the bunk on it.” Josh only joined War­ren’s team in April this year. Be­fore that he drove for Nolan’s Trans­port. Oddly enough, War­ren, a for­mer Brown & Hur­ley me­chanic by trade, has spent the last 12 years sub­by­ing for Nolan’s.

“He’s got the 900, a 950, an ex-Bor­der Ex­press Aero­dyne and an old West­ern Star,” Josh says. “Ex­cept for the 950, they don’t look as good as this, and it’s a beau­ti­ful truck to drive.

“I drove a 909 be­fore this, chalk and cheese. You wouldn’t go back to a 909.”

Josh was at Lights On The Hill to pay trib­ute to two of his mates, Mick Ball and Luke ‘Checkas’ Cekanauskas, the lat­ter’s name dis­played on the front of the T900.
