Neerim Show 2016

We took the Mercedes Benz out to the Neerim Show on Sunday, January 24 2016. It was an overcast day, with rain and drizzle - luckily John had decided to put the Benz on the trailer and float it up  so it didn't get dirty, other wise he would have just decided to stay home. Good display of trucks, some tractors and a tractor pull, plus some old cars, modern utes, lawn mower racing, cattle judging, dog high jump, chain saw sculpting, stationary engines, the Morwell Caledonian pipe band and rides for the kids. Good day - here are most of the trucks which were on display.

ATHS East Gippsland Heritage Truck Display 2015 - Part 2 - Diamonds, Kenworths and Macks

The second annual ATHS East Gippsland Heritage Truck Display was held on November 28 and 29 2015 at the Maffra Recreation Reserve. John and I went up on the Sunday - there were maybe 90 trucks, some had just come for the day, other trucks were there on the Saturday and not on the Sunday, so there was plenty to see.  Here are the Diamonds, the Kenworths and the Macks. To see most of the other trucks on display, click here
