JAKE AND AMY Maunder rolled up to Alexandra in an Inter Capital Express Western Star 4800 Stratosphere, although it’s not Jake’s regular drive.
“This is the boss’s truck, Gary Collins. Mine is halfway through an engine rebuild and sadly wasn’t ready in time,” he explains.
Jake usually drives a Western Star Constellation, and although it wasn’t available, the couple were still keen to attend the show.
“This is actually my first; I’ve never been able to get to Alexandra before,” he says.
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.
