The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch

New Zealand Hino FG1 (2003)
This 2003 FG1 model was previously a rubbish truck and retains its GARB 02 personalised plates. It is shown shortly after completion by Pleasant Point Engineering (but before striping was applied) and was allocated by the South Canterbury Rural Fire District to the Rangitata rural fire party.
