Owner operator’s prized vintage White

Experienced owner-operator Chris Howard is proud of his 1981 White Road Boss truck.

That was easy to see when I saw him tending to it recently.

Aged 53, Howard’s company is C&C Howard and he is based at Wauchope in New South Wales.

“I am checking out the truck and doing some maintenance whilst I have a break here at BP Cluden in Townsville,” he said.

Howard said there was a genuine shortage of truck friendly rest areas especially in Queensland.

He added that a major federal election issue for owner-drivers was the cost of fuel which impacted everybody.

The highway he dislikes travelling on is the Leichhardt Highway in Queensland.

The first truck he drove was a TK Bedford, with his long career ensuing.

Howard barracks for the Canberra Raiders in the NRL and he hauled pipes from Victoria to north Queensland.
