Peter's Peterbilt

Peter Rowland, keen to expand his truck collection, was looking around for a Peterbilt. They seem to be a bit thin on the ground these days in Australia so it was off to America. It wasn't easy there either but he did manage to negotiate the purchase of two, including an early 50s Bubble Nose. What's a Bubble Nose? This is a Bubble Nose.
Meanwhile, Peter, almost recovered after donating a kidney, and proving you only need one, was in Adelaide with his daughter for the Easter Healey event with the V8 AH again. I'm sure we'll get to see the big wide 4000 eventually.

It's white now, following the almost finished restoration. The hold up is with the windscreen. A mould was made, then a couple of windscreens, both of which have cracked. Another mould has now been done and hopefully the problem will be solved.
