CLASSIFIED TRUCK & DRIVER EASTERN BAY STOCK Every rural community in New Zealand used to have their local and sometimes more than one local rural carrier. These fleets provided a full range of rural services from picking up hay delivering sand and metal and carrying live stock. Through the many rural downturns one by one many of these companies disappeare­d and slowly the rural carrier became a thing of the past.

Today many of these fleets are gone for ever but once again Gavin Abbot has brought them back to life with yet another of his collector series of books compiled from his extensive photo library, order your copy now of this limited edition collectors series.
