Lucky seven for Sydney Classic and Antique Truck Show

Recommended Posts

Owner/Driver  /  May 8, 2017

Trucks, buses, fire engines and vehicles of yesteryear will take over the grounds of Penrith's Museum of Fire on May 28.

The Sydney Classic and Antique Truck Show is on again at Penrith’s Museum of Fire.

This year’s event, held on Sunday, May 28, will be the seventh running of the show.

Along with classic trucks, there will be displays of old buses, fire engines, and vehicles of yesteryear from across the country.

As always, the Sydney Classic and Antique Truck Show is a step back into days gone, with a world of fascinating nostalgia and activities for all ages.

The trucks on show range from the solid rubber boneshakers of 1914 through to the kings of the highway of the ’60s and ’70s.

International award-winning Matt Falloon and his Trained Balloons will keep the kids occupied.

Elsewhere in the Museum of Fire’s grounds, demonstrations throughout the day by vintage-dressed firefighters will highlight the skills of yesteryear as they put classic fire engines to work.

For those old timers recalling the days of running the gauntlet around Sydney in their late teens and early 20s, the sight of the historic police motorbikes and cars, including the infamous Chargers, could bring back a twinge of discomfort.

In addition to the displays within the grounds, patrons are invited to take a journey back in time on one of the vintage double-decker bus rides to see Penrith from a different view.

Other displays include Fire and Rescue NSW with live fire demonstrations of their Kitchen Fire Simulator, not to mention the displays within the Museum of Fire building itself.

Prices are $15 for adults, which includes up to three children under 16 free with each paying adult. Once inside the grounds, all thrill rides are free.

Gates open at 8am with the show running through until 3pm.
