Chung Sue’s shiny new truck caught Faye Lougher’s eye when she was shopping at the fruit and vege market in Levin. Chung and his wife, Kathy, own the Garden of York, so truck driving is not Chung’s everyday occupation – the truck is used to deliver produce to his customers. The 2018 Isuzu CYJ460 AMT with a 16-speed auto was bought to replace a smaller Isuzu that had come to the end of its life. Chung obviously takes pride in keeping his truck immaculate – not an easy task when dusty paddocks surround his market garden!

Chung has been transporting his produce by truck for 20 years, originally just between Ohau and Wellington, but now he travels between Levin and Palmerston North. He says driving the truck he is very aware of the fact he isn’t doing the same speed as other vehicles. “There are a lot more vehicles today but the people are quite good on the road. The truck goes slower than the cars and there are a lot of things to think about. You just have to be careful, especially with things like turning.” Chung says his new truck with its bright green paintwork and curtains is easy to see and nice to drive. When asked if he’d rather go for a swim or a run, Chung said he’d rather go swimming.
