Longwarry Heritage Truck Show 2014 - Atkinsons to GMC

The second Longwarry Heritage Truck Show was held on February 1 and 2, 2014 at the Recreation Reserve. There were around 100 trucks at the show, plus various other vehicles - cars, tractors, earth moving equipment and some stationary engines. Both days were really hot , with the Sunday being over 40 degrees, so that kept the numbers of both trucks and spectators down a bit, but it was a great show and bigger and better than 2013. In this post you will see Atkinsons to GMC. To see Internationals all the way through the alphabet to Whites, click here.


There were five Atkinsons on display - including this grand looking one - what a great truck!








Austin fire truck


1957 Austin fire truck owned by Wayne Roots. Even though this is now out of commission it was used during the Black Saturday fires in 2009 as they were short of trucks.


Here they are again, a good looking pair


Old Austin and, below, is the interesting collection of old stuff that they had on the tray



We're up to Bedfords now. This is Bob Needham's very neat 1953 tray truck


Jim Parker's Bedford - he had it well set up for camping overnight


Graham Young's Bedford





Rob and Carol Tylee's 1957 Bendigo tram truck - the working platform still operates and was used by a few intrepid photographers to get some aerial shots of the show

This is Wayne Henry's Ford - it's not a truck, but he does belong to the Trafalgar Truck Restorers Club, so it gets it's picture on my blog
