Dubbo Vintage Truck Show 2012 - Part 1

The Golden Oldies Truck Club ( held their fifth Vintage Truck Show at the Dubbo Showgrounds on August 11 and 12. We took the Volvo and the Benz up and we had a fantastic time.  There were apparently about 260 trucks in all, with International being the featured make.  If you want to see the Internationals then click here. If you want to see Kenworths, Macks, Peterbilts and Whites, then click here. All our other photographs are here.

These are our two trucks on the back of the working truck and the Topstart trailer. This was taken at Harden on the way home.
