TRUCK enthusiasts from around Australia will truck on down to Echuca’s Rotary Park this weekend for the 10th annual American Iron Echuca Heritage Truck Display.

Around 250 vintage trucks are expected to roll into the park on Saturday, making it the biggest Echuca truck display the club has ever seen, according to club president Ross Talbot.

“We’ve been going 10 years, and it has got bigger and better each year,” he said.

Day admission is $10 for adults, but is free for children or anyone who rolls in with a heritage truck.

“They’ll be coming from Tassie, Northern Territory, South Australia, NSW, we do get them from a lot of areas.”

The club has 400 members Australia-wide, and Ross said the Echuca truck display was a good chance for truck enthusiasts to catch up with old friends who they haven’t seen in a long time and to reminisce about the good ol’ days.

“When I was a kid my dad and brother always drove trucks, and some of them we’ve kept for a long time. This is a good place to display them. It’ll be a good, fun weekend.”

The weekend will have live music, a Thomas the Tank Engine display, a jumping castle, face painting, miniature train rides, and a tractor pull on both days.

The gates will open from 9am to 4pm on Saturday and Sunday.

Those wanting to know more about the day can call Ross Talbot on 0428506807.
