Kenworths on show
Dion Pateras and Dom Greco were polishing their respective trucks when
Deals On Wheels caught up with them. Dion had brought along a T950 with 4.3 million kilometres on the clock, while Dom had a Kenworth T404ST – both owned by Pateras Interstate Transport.
“Six to seven years ago, it was given a paint job but still has the original chassis, paint, diffs and drive guards. It is very straight and never been over. It doesn’t owe us anything. It’s a family heirloom, this one,” Dion says.
The T950 is one of 35 trucks in the
Pateras fleet, which is based in Werribee South. The Cummins N14 that sits under the bonnet has been changed over three times. The T950 is still running up to Brisbane and, according to Dion, is still going strong.
“It’s the one truck show that I make the effort for. I’d miss a day’s work to get to this show, it’s a great weekend!” he says.
