Charlie's Kennie.

Post by AutoBuff on Thu 02 Feb 2012, 3:38 pm



This truck is an old Kenworth driven back in the late 60's for Padget's by another dear old friend who's had a pretty remarkable life. He saw Jack's Mack and very sheepishly inquired how much to make my old truck. And the way I felt after, giving away Jack's truck I could'nt bring myself to charge for this one either. But that said I'm not starting a free for all. The photo on back of the truck show's the size of the tree's he used to cart around. a single rider he called it. Any way enjoy. cheer's John.

Thank's allan & dv8v8. We were going to at first and Charlie did offer but I couldn't bring myself to after it was finished, in the end the look on his face as was with Jack was thank's and payment enough. By the way I had a little help with this one from another dear friend here in Tas' to make sure I had this one period correct. His name is Linley and he has a passion for these old girl's. He also has a good friend named Nigel Low of auslow resin truck stuff which help's big time. Ohh' Yes we did build the tailer as well with an approprriate scaled log too. I don't have any photo's of it yet. I'll try to get one or two and put them up. Thank's again guy's. cheer's john.

I love these old trucks. Any chance of more pics?

I understand your reluctance in some cases to charge for a special build job, especially when it means so much to the other person. Well done to you.

nice truck and a nice gift. i gave the replica of the Delegate Motors tow truck to the owner and asked nothing for it. Old truckers seem to like models.

Hi, guy's here's the photo's I said I'd try to find. They are scanned copies , so not real crisp shot's. Any who, the two on the base are the finished truck just before we took it up to Charlie's place. The other shot is a pic of the real truck back in it's heyday. so enjoy. cheer's john.
