Small.... but perfectly formed
 September 2021    Story Brian Cowan Photos Gerald Shacklock

You only have to talk to Steve Martin for a little while to understand that this is a man with a real passion for trucks and trucking.

Someone who not only loves the machines and the industry….but also has a good knowledge of the history of trucking in Otago – born of growing up in and around the trucks his Dad John drove when Steve was a kid.

And from the time spent as a workmate of his Dad’s, driving for RA Little and Samson Freight – as John went on to clock up almost half a century behind the wheel.

And then….from his own 42-year career (so far) – most of it based out of hometown Dunedin. 

Of course, he’s not unique in having inherited a passion for trucks from his father. It used to happen all the time in Kiwi trucking.

What is remarkable though is that Steve – for all his love for trucks – never harboured a burning desire to own them….to create a Steve Martin trucking empire.
