The popular and fascinating Yesteryear Truck and Machinery Show rolls into Wauchope showground this weekend.
Organisers are expecting a wide range of vintage trucks, antique and historic tractors, cars and engines from local collectors, as well as the surrounding districts.
There will be swap/meet and trading stalls on both Saturday and Sunday, July 9 and 10. A delicious variety of hot food and drinks will be supplies by Wauchope Lions and the Westpac Rescue Helicopter support group.
The highlight is the parade at 1pm on Saturday, which gives visitors the chance to see much of the old machinery on the move.
Organiser Kirby Maxwell says it will be a great opportunity to look at historical vehicles and machinery that were once fully operational, and used in many industries, including local timber-hauling here in Timbertown.
“It’s going to be great, with lots of vintage trucks that haven’t been here before. People have been ringing up from all over the place to say they’re coming.” he said.
Most trucks date back to the Forties, Fifties, Sixties, Seventies and Eighties, and they’ve even had one that was 102.
Anyone who is not a club member, but who owns old machinery or vehicles, is invited to call Kirby on 0407 594 149 to enter their gear in the show free of charge.
There will be market stalls, swap meet, and family entertainment.
The organisers promise something for everyone.
Exhibitors get free entry and free camping. Powered sites are $20 per night.
The times are 9am to 4pm on Saturday, and 9am to 1pm on Sunday. Admission is $7 per head, children under 12 get free admission.
Swap-market stalls are $30 per weekend, including power.
On Saturday night, there will be a fully-catered meal and an unreserved charity auction, with proceeds going to local charities.
Organisers say bring the family, and let us do the cooking.
