Ken­worths on show

Deals on Wheels - - Truck Shows -

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.
