The South­ern Cross Super-Liner se­ries was an­nounced in 2012, built to cel­e­brate Mack’s 50 years in Aus­tralia. When Jason Board­man heard about the special re­lease, he knew he just had to have one. Jason re­quested for it to be de­liv­ered on May 29, 2013, the first an­niver­sary of his fa­ther Len­nie’s pass­ing. In fact, the lim­ited edi­tion Super-Liner was bought as a tribute to his fa­ther. In ad­di­tion, Jason’s mum Wendy Board­man re­quested a mu­ral of her late hus­band for the cab’s rear wall, which was com­pleted by Bel Air Truck Spray­paint­ing in Bris­bane. The Mack is now five years old and has clocked up over half a mil­lion kilo­me­tres, but still looks stun­ning as it hauls sand and gravel.
