Trevor Vale aka NODDY THE POSTMASTER
What’s in a name?” Well, says Trevor, it was either going to be Postman Pat (and that’s been taken !) , or Noddy ; complete with Postman Pat’s black and “ not so white” cat. This stuffed cat has travelled more of Australia, than most people dream of, perched on the front bulbar of this beautiful 2007 International. The Cummins ISX 550 has powered through hundreds of thousands of kilometers to Cairns, Darwin, Melbourne and Sydney.

With a huge Facebook following as Noddy the Post Master, Trevor’s posts about life on the road are insightful and funny. His Anzac Day post “Get to an Anzac Day Dawn service “was picked up by Channel 9 and gathered 1,600,000 views. He brought the International to Torquepower today to see about a clutch fault. Mick, the owner, has been bringing his rigs to Torquepower for 20 years.

Driving for 15 years now, Trevor still loves his job. “ I wouldn’t do anything else. No matter what else you do, you can’t beat driving for seeing Australia. Every time I drive to Darwin, its different, the grass is greener, or the sunrise more spectacular. “

The exciting part for us at Torquepower is this truck has 2.3 million kilometers on the original motor, and records an exceptional fuel economy of over 2.3 kilometres per litre . That’s the Torquepower service difference !
