Shane White

A MACK truck named The Mistress is very well known among road transport industry people in North Queensland.

But it creates a lot of interest among others, who see it being driven around by small fleet owner Shane White.

Big Rigs saw 53-year-old Shane pull up in the 2007 Mack Fleetliner at the Bohle Little Acre on November 2 and we asked him the reason.

"This Mack is very well known and my wife called it The Mistress 'cause she reckons I spend more time in it than with her," Shane said.

The couple is based at Dimbulah, on the Atherton Tableland, and also owns a new UD Nissan.

"We mainly cart stockfeed from Townsville to places like Normanton and Georgetown," Shane said.

Shane likes stopping off at the Greenvale Roadhouse on his travels.
