The Museum of Fire at Penrith is set to host its second big event of the year when the Sydney Classic & Antique Truck Show takes place on Sunday, June 15.

The Museum of Fire was the venue for the Penrith Working Truck Show in April, however the Sydney Classic & Antique Truck Show gives the historic vehicles a chance to shine in their own right.

This will be the fourth running of the show, which brings together classic trucks, buses, fire engines and vehicles of yesteryear from across the country.

The will be a world of fascinating nostalgia and activities for all ages, which solid rubber boneshakers of 1914 through to the kings of the highway of the ’60s and ’70.

As well as the historic vehicles, the superb vocal talents of sibling trio Audio Vixen will present its ‘Classic Rock Show’. The outrageous Buddy Goode will also entertain, while versatile funnyman Mick Meredith will take to the stage. In addition, Beatle Magic will present its salute to the legendary Liverpool superstars supported by local group Tailgate.

Other entertainment includes international award winning Matt Falloon and his Trained Balloons, and there will be demonstrations throughout the day by retro dressed firefighters, showcasing the skills of yesteryear as they put some classic fire engines to work.

More history will be relived with historic police cars and bikes on display, including the infamous Chargers.

Patrons will be able to take a journey back in time on one of the vintage double decker bus rides and see Penrith from a different view.

In the grounds, it will seem as though the circus has come to town with a display of beautifully restored wagons and vehicles from Bullen’s Circus of yesteryear.

The organisers say there will be something for everyone at this year’s show, including displays by Fire and Rescue NSW with live fire demonstrations of their Kitchen Fire Simulator together with the fascinating displays of the Museum of Fire.

Adult tickets are only $15, which includes up to three children under 16 free with each paying adult). Gates open from 8am through to 3pm.
