I spent most of my primary school years in Chinchilla where my Dad was a builder. I had a few uncles with properties in the region, so I have always had a love of Western Queensland and farming life. My first ever drive was in a 40 series ute on a sheep property near Kogan. Dad’s work truck back then was a 1977 HJ45 ‘Tilly’, which started an early admiration for ‘Tojo’s’ as we called them. In 2009 I had the opportunity to buy a one owner example from a farmer in Bowenville. It was an unmodified example and truly never been on the beach. Both my kids and a few mates lads have had their first drives on in ‘Old Leaky’.
