On Saturday, July 8th, two members from Taree Historic Motor Club made their way to Wauchope for the Yesteryear Truck & Machinery Show. President Lindsay Higson brought along his 1967 Bedford J3 truck, which looked absolutely superb, and myself, my 1925 Ford Model T. The weather was fantastic, warm, with not a cloud in the sky. Roughly 130 trucks filled the arena at Wauchope showgrounds, and scattered around the outside, around 30 vintage cars, a selection of pre-war motorcycles, vintage tractors and bulldozers, stationary engines; both petrol and steam powered, market stalls and a swap meet.
I’m pleased to say my car was awarded Best Car for the 1900-1930 category.
Everything on wheels was also invited to participate in the Grand Parade, around the outside of the arena, with commentary by a very knowledgeable commentator, who seemed to know a lot about every vehicle that drove past him – including mine! A great show, highly recommended, I will definitely be returning next year.
Enjoy the video 🙂
