A old employee found these and sent them in. Great find, including the first show for the Super Loop
Cheers

Great photos thanks for sharing. Love seeing the old rigs towing the trailers, was the Loop brand new or bought used?

Most of those Commers are still parked in the sheds, thankfully none on the road at the moment. The Loop was brand new, I believe a number of parts where made in NZ and finished off here.

You can see the late Bill Mahon working the controls on the Loop, and I am told the man in the overalls is the Texan sent out to give set up / opertion instructions.

While I believe one is still in the country it hasn't worked in a number of years.
