Garfield Christmas Festival 2014

The Garfield Christmas Festival was held for the first time in many years and the Trafalgar Truck Restorers Club was invited along - nine local trucks turned up. It was a great event - all the shops were open, community groups were involved, the weather was fine and there was a good crowd - so the organisers would have to be happy.


This 1965 Seattle cab Kenworth got the Kenworth buffs talking. It is owned by Steve and Mick Ellis.


This 1978 Kenworth is owned by Ted Bould


David O'Farrell's Ford L9000


Mick De Vries' Federal timber jinker


Des Walker's Diamond T timber jinker


Alan McCormack's B-model Mack
