We went to the Golden Oldies Truck Club show at Dubbo showgrounds on August 9, 2014 and for some reason didn't post any of the photos here at the time - so here they are, two years later. The Dubbo Truck Show has trucks in a pavillion and trucks in the open, some of our photos we took in the pavilion are pretty ordinary, couldn't get the camera settings right. In this post you will see all the Atkinsons to the Fodens. To see all the Fords, Internationals and Kenworths, click here. To see the Macks and all the trucks alphabetically through to Whites, click here.
We'll start with Frank Latorre's Foden. Frank is an avid truck show supporter and travels miles each year going to truck shows.
Here's Frank's Foden again in the Grand Parade
I'm not sure what make this is, I just call it a Fire Engine
Paddy Ward's Ampol tanker - it's a Federal. Because I like it, here it is twice.
This is an ERF - you don't see many of them, so here's two views of it.

Above and below - 2 really bad photos, but as the owners came all the way from Victoria to Dubbo for the show, they deserve to be recorded in the blog. Brian Dawe's truck is above and Jeff Johnston's 1929 Dodge, is below.
Rod Calleja's Diamond REO - dark coloured truck, in the pavilion, sadly a bad photo of a good looking truck was inevitable.

Two very nice Diamonds
John Knight's Diamond T
Paddy Ward's Diamond T
Good looking Commer, pity we didn't remove the bucket from under the truck before we took the photo.
Chevrolet, above and below, this was such a great looking truck, pictures don't do it justice.
Another neat Chev
This is a Blitz
