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
