Herb McDonald

THE 2001 Sterling driven by Herb McDonald used to be called Feral Cat.

However that changed in mid-November when Herb was driving along between Julia Creek and Cloncurry.

"There was a flock of big white birds on the highway and one hit the front of the Sterling and took off the F from feral,'' Herb said.

So until that is replaced the truck is now "eral Cat'.

Herb lives in Townsville and works for Rollingstone Transport which is at a small hamlet 55km away up the Bruce Highway.

"I play golf when I get some recreation and have been a truckie on and off for 40 years," he said.

Herb hauls mainly bitumen and lime in the trusty Sterling which is powered by a 600hp C-16 motor.
