Toots Bainbridge and her truck, Australia

Toots Bainbridge - what a character. Ran this truck up and down Cape York Peninsula for years. One tough lady. Rough dirt road in the tropics, met her only once, got killed loading her truck. Vehicle is now restored and sitting in the truck museum in Alice Springs.

Makes a picture far more interesting, but don't you think she'd rather think her lorry was on the road? That is of course is something we'll never know. All the best, Andrew.
