The arrival of the gigantic Freightliner / Harley Davidson racing rig, for their inaugural Big Boys Toys event, is just one reason the team at Daimler Trucks Sunshine Coast are celebrating this week. The local trucking dealership has just been named Australia’s number one, Freightliner, rural dealer 2017 and have also announced a further two years sponsorship of the Brad Jones racing team.

Marketing Manager Jane Chapman says; “2018 is proving to be an award winning, exciting year for both Freightliner and our Forest Glen trucking dealership. What better way for us to celebrate our successes than by hosting our BIG BOYS TOYS party, starring our eye catching, Freightliner / Harley Davidson monster racing rig.”

The turbo charged rig leaves Sydney on Wednesday 21 February for the 1,000km road trip north and is due to arrive on the Sunshine Coast Thursday afternoon. The rig is kitted out with a plethora of Harley Davidson biking memorabilia and merchandise perfect eye candy for the racing, biking enthusiast.

The racing rig isn’t the only eye popping, monster toy, on show as the Daimler Trunks Sunshine Coast car park transforms itself into an American themed pop up diner featuring local DJ Jesswah and gigantic bouncy castle.

Jane states; “There will be over 40 toys on display at the event with lots of our customers getting on board and showing their prize possessions. One customer is bringing down his own semi-trailer with sprint racing complete with wings and another is showing his on-trend Telsa with power trailer.”

Whether classic cars like the Torano, Thunderbird and Mustang, the uber stylish Mercedes-Benz ML 63 AMG or super charged utes are your thing there’s a toy on show for all eras and tastes. Jane says; 

“And we’ve got more than cars and trucks. There will be Harleys, Mercedes-Benz UNIMOGS, Xplorers, boats, jetskis and heaps heaps more.”

The free event culminates in a fuel filled, ’rev the engines’ demo and prize ceremony where 4 x $250 cash prizes will be awarded to lucky toy owners who take out the coveted ‘best on show’ categories.

This noisy, high octane, BIG BOYS TOYS event is set to be a truly fun affair for the whole family. Jane says, “This inaugural event is the perfect opportunity for the Daimler Trucks Sunshine Coast team to celebrate our success at being named inner Australia’s number one, Freightliner, rural dealer with our valued customers, families and friends.”
