Jake and Amy Maun­der rolled up to Alexan­dra in an In­ter Cap­i­tal Ex­press West­ern Star 4800 Strato­sphere, although it’s not his reg­u­lar drive.

“This is the boss’s truck, Gary Collins. Mine is half­way through an en­gine re­build and sadly wasn’t ready in time,” Jake ex­plains.

Jake usu­ally drives a West­ern Star Con­stel­la­tion and, although it wasn’t avail­able, the cou­ple were still keen to be at the show.

“This is ac­tu­ally my first; I’ve never been able to get to Alexan­dra be­fore.” Jake and Amy, who live in Bayles near Koo Wee Rup, also took part in the Vic­to­ria Camp Qual­ity Con­voy ear­lier this year.

To grab a handy po­si­tion at Alexan­dra, they arrived on the Satur­day night, bed­ding down in the truck’s cab.

“It was a lit­tle bit chilly,” Amy re­marks.
