Last of the Chrome Bumpers 2014

The Last of the Chrome Bumpers show took place on Sunday, October 5 2014 at Lardner Park in Warragul.  Over 2,000 cars were displayed and about 40 trucks, most of them from the Trafalgar Truck Restorers Club. Here's some pictures from the day.

These are our trucks -our 1974 1418 Benz and our 1976 N10 Volvo

Here they are again

'Molly' a well restored Morris Minor van.

Roger Olsen's 1970 Bedford, first outing on red plates for this truck.

Alan Weatherhead's Ford - T model is it? It used to belong to his dad, Graham.

I know, it's not  a truck, but it belongs to John Burley, who is a good member of the Traf Club and the Gippsland Vehicle Collection, so this Humber Hawk gets to feature in this blog.
