Neerim Show 2017

The Trafalgar Truck Restorers Club attends the Neerim Show every year and the Show was held today, Sunday January 29 2017. As well as the usual modern day Show activities including dog high jump, lawn mower racing, stunt motor bike riding - there was also a display of historic cars, steam traction engines and the historic trucks. The trucks are picture here, with some traction engines, because I really like them.

Line-up of some of the trucks

Here's our 1989 N12 Intercooler with integrated sleeper

NH12 Volvo  - not really historic (1999/2000 model), but we liked it, because it's a Volvo!

I have decided we will look at the  trucks by colour -this is Max Devlin's blue 1948 Kew Dodge

Tony Hackett's blue 1957 REO Gold Comet

John Fowler's blue 1947  Dodge. It had a few 'issues' on the way up but there were plenty of people to give advice.

Graham Young's green 1947 Bedford

Bob Lee's  green 1937 Diamond T

Andrew Main's green 1964 Dodge
