Mick Smith al­ways wanted a bon­neted Ken­worth for his Milin Trans­port fleet, but due to lo­gis­tics they didn’t fit the bill – un­til the ar­rival of the T610. The ver­sa­til­ity of the T610 of­fered the flex­i­bil­ity he needed to haul sin­gle, B-dou­bles, ex­tend­ables and road trains. Mick worked with the team at B&K Lines & Signs in the Bris­bane sub­urb of Darra to give the truck a dif­fer­ent look, the blue base colour in­flu­enced by the orig­i­nal T610 demos. In ad­di­tion, per­son­alised pieces were added to the rear vents and door sills, thanks to Rock­lea Truck Elec­tri­cal. “They are chalk and cheese to ev­ery­thing Ken­worth’s ever built,” Mick ex­plains of the T610s. “They are more of a car inside.”
