THE TRUCKER's TRUCK * Australia: The big rig of his dreams
* Queensland - Phat Cat wins Rig of the Day at LOTH
Phat Cat Western Star has now won two major truck show awards... Most recently, the truck was voted Rig of the Day at the Lights on the Hill Show and Shine... He said the truck worked daily in his North Queensland Truck and Machinery business carting trucks and machinery from Brisbane to North Queensland... The 4800 used to be white, since then he's stripped her back to a bare shell, had Advance Tech Autos at Coolum change the colour, add feature murals and blinged it up with the help of Rocklea Truck Electrical to the tune of $130,000... Mr Williams has rebuilt the motor and it has now done more than two million kilometres... He's been in transport for 32 years and "finally” has the truck of his dreams... "It took a long time,” he said...
