Alistair Mathers

VETERAN owner/driver truckie Alistair Mathers (pictured second from right) loves his 2006 Hino which delivers furniture and sometimes cars.

The 71-year-old Alistair is based on the Sunshine Coast and his company is Trusty Removals.

When Big Rigs saw Alistair he was sitting beside the Hino with his partner Faye Jefferson and friends Gary Cartwright and Anne Fraser.

They were sitting in fold-up seats beside the Hino at the parking area of the BP Cluden enjoying a cuppa.

"I have brought up two race cars for the North Queensland Titles at Cairns," he said.

"We have space in the back for beds to sleep in."

Alistair was glowing in his praise of the Hino which he purchased new.

"It has done 400,000km and I haven't had to take a spanner to it," he said.

"This is the third Hino I have had."
