Love for old trucks doubles crowd

FROM big trucks and tractors to push mowers and pedal cars, this year s Heritage Truck Association annual show had something for everyone. Association secretary Phyllis Davies said this year the crowd doubled at the May 21 and 22 show. The Thursday night before the show trucks started rolling in and they kept coming all day Friday and Saturday morning.

In all there was about 400 trucks at the event, packing the arena.

It s just fantastic, it s great so many people turned up, there were trucks, tractors, new and old trucks, she said. On the day a slow truck race was held, the prize going to whoever could go the slowest. At the show was a huge D8 Caterpillar from the Caterpillar Club, truck models, pedal cars and old mowers were also on display in the hall.

Mrs Davies said everyone had a great time.

Trevor and myself would like to say a big thank you to all of our members who helped to make the show on the week end such a great success, she said.

We had visitors from down south come up and they complimented our club for a great show.

Many of the public said they really enjoyed the weekend and there was a feature in the Courier Mail yesterday about the show and this is great.

Thank you once again and we look forward to future events. She also thanked sponsors Brisbane Isuzu, Cat Trucks, Daimler Trucks, Iveco Trucks, Kenworth – Brown and Hurley, Western Star Trucks and Volvo/Mack Trucks. As well as showing off trucks from another era the show raises money for charity with the association donating to Guide Dogs for the Blind, Prostate Cancer and Motor Neuron Disease charities in the past three years.
