Codey is definitely taking after his dad

IT WAS good to get a call from Tony Whitehouse recently, the Tasmulch driver from Perth and social secretary of the Tasmanian branch of the Hino Fanciers Club.

He gave Big Rigs a rundown on the Alexandra Truck, Ute and Rod Show held on the Queen's Birthday weekend last month, which he said was its usual success.

While in Melbourne, Tony took his 11-year-old son Codey along to visit the Kenworth Factory at Bayswater.

While there, they checked out all the latest models and technology and picked up some brochures for Sean Hinds' brother, Tony, in Queensland.

Sean, meanwhile, is hoping to pick up the presidency of the Hino Appreciation Society at the next annual general meeting, to be held in Cleveland in late July.

Codey was all too happy to climb up into the latest-model Kenworth but baulked once he saw there was no gear stick.

"That's not a proper truck,” he said.

It seems like he is taking after his dad.
