Stefan Rybarcyzk Collection
« on: February 21, 2018, 01:05:44 AM »
While I was doing my apprenticeship many moons ago, the boss had a side business selling trucks in partnership with a locally well know truck salesman names Stefan Rybarcyzk who had sold almost everything truck wise that could be sold over the years. Stefan retired last year and gave me a call asking if I was interested in everything truck related that he had collected over the years .... of course I couldn't say no and ended up with his full photo collection as well as flags, manuals, dealer brochure kits and much more. So I will slowly drip feed the photos on to this thread for all to see.

Australia is wellknown for its road trains,but not many know we had them here in Tasmania too. They only traveled on private roads to the Triabunna mill in the south east coast. Here is a C500 Kenworth.

Another W model set up for road train work

And probably Tasmania's most famous Road Train called Big Puss on account of its 3408 Cat engine

Thanks guys, being a truck salesman there are a lot of dealer shots, farm shots of trade ins and series of the modifications made, so this will be an interesting journey.

Some Australian Mack fans may know the name Dick Beckett of Exeter, Nth Tasmania, He has the second largest Mack collection in Australia behind Tony Champion in QLD. This W model was owned by him many moons ago

stefan20 by werkhorse, on Flickr

And some say this is Tasmania's most famous trucks An early shot of Gary Rice's W model called "Evil,Wicked, Mean and Nasty" after the sticker on the front of a similar W model that featured on a doona cover years ago named "The Flying Scotsman"

Stillon the KW theme we have a n S2 at the front line of the Launceston Dealership at Youngtown, notice the R model Mack hiding behind.

I have always loved these two photos of Bishop's W model Logger in the wet.... which is a common weather situation here in Tasmania.

Imagine my surprise while looking through a good mates collection in Wagga Wagga, New South Wales, when I found the very same truck in this state.
