Dave Horne's Convoy visits the Camerons at Neerim Junction

Dave Horne and his convoy stayed the first night of his 2009 Run at Heather and Graham Cameron's place at Neerim Junction. It was a very hot and humid day which, with the hilly terrain, proved very wearying for both people and trucks. However, they all got through in the end and we joined other members of the Trafalgar Truck Restorers Club and the Convoy for a BBQ that night. Dave’s Convoy continued on the next day (November 1) for the rest of his Roof Top Run which was to wander around the hills and the Snowy Mountains and eventually to end up around Albury. It was a great evening with good food and good company and best of all some historic trucks to see.

Overview of some of the trucks.

There were four trucks on the Run from South Australia - above, a 1949 Morris Commercial owned by David and Cheryl Austin. Below is 1957 Morris Commercial owned by Andrew and Rosanne Cruickshanks.

The two other South Australian trucks were Murray Langford's KB S5 International (above) and a 1953 Morris (below) owned by Colin and Glenys McDonald of Mount Gambier. The Austin, pictured next to the 1953 Morris, is owned by Fred & Val Bignell from Ballarat.

The Ford 600 (above) is owned by Carl Hennessy. The K3 International (below) is owned by Ed Eminson, who came all the way from Dubbo.

The long and the short of it. This is Bill and Pat O'Halloran's International, passing our Volvo and 38' Freighter trailer.

Some of the Trafalgar Truck Restorers Club members came with their vehicles. Above - Tony and Glenys Hackett's 1957 Reo Gold Comet and Bob Lee's 1937 Diamond T. Below - John and Bev Ferguson's KB3 International , Ian and Val Benson's 1970 C1300 International and Graeme Johnston's 1976 TK Bedford.

Finally, two 'Restorer's Delights' a Dodge 1016 and an International AR148.
