Mini Kenworth tours various Quebec festivals

Mini Kenworth

In April 2007, Jacques Auger, with the help his friend, Donald Gingras, wanted to do something for his home town; a town where he still resides. He and Mr. Gingras decided to make a mini-truck for the Laurier-Station Santa Claus Parade. When they started the project, the idea was to take a golf cart and give it the appearance of a tractor pulling a tanker. But they no sooner got into it when they realized that their best approach was to make an exact scale replica of a Transport Jacques Auger truck pulling a tanker.

Donald Gingras proved to be the real architect behind the project, assisting several subcontractors. In fact, a total of 2,600 hours ended up being needed and put in by the team to achieve the Mini Kenworth tanker and its 1:2.2 scale.

The engine is a Cummins diesel three-cylinder 1.7 L 37 hp, with an added turbo. The scale truck has a 5-speed Ford Ranger transmission and Suzuki Jeep differentials.

And everything—absolutely everything—is functional.

Today, the Mini Kenworth tours various Quebec festivals. It moves on its gleaming 40-foot trailer, towed by a Kenworth W900L big brother… and can be used for distributing various beverages.

It may even be available for your event. Both youngsters and adults get a real kick out of it.
