Well pre­pared

There were plenty of trucks on show at Hey­wood well be­fore the con­voy ar­rived from Mt Gam­bier, in­clud­ing a stun­ning bright blue Ken­worth C508.

Jye Sav­age drove the im­pres­sive Gel­lie’s Earth­mov­ing truck from Ararat.

Jye says he’s at­tended many shows as a spec­ta­tor, but this was his first in a truck.

“A few of the boys up home de­cided to come down and I thought ‘why not?’”

Jye says the 508 was off the road for a week get­ting cleaned and pol­ished to be ready for the show.

“Most of the time the rig is busy pulling a float or side tip­per,” he ex­plains. “It’s a good truck and goes like a train.”
