Classic trucks to turn out at Penrith
Vintage trucks will be on display at Penrith's Museum of Fire on May 31.

 

On Sunday, May 31, Penrith’s Museum of Fire will present the fifth Annual Sydney Classic and Antique Truck Show, where classic trucks, buses, fire engines and vehicles of yesteryear from across the country will be on display.

The Museum’s grounds are also the venue for the annual Working Truck Show, which was held March 29.

The trucks will range from the solid rubber boneshakers of 1914 through to the kings of the highway of the ’1960s and ’70.

As well as the nostalgic displays, the show will feature free children’s rides and non-stop live entertainment. The superb vocal talents of the 3Bs will bring to life the melodies of The Bee Gees, while the classic rock of The Beetles will add to the retro atmosphere, reliving the sounds of a never forgotten era.

Complementing those acts will be hilarious ventriloquist Darren Carr, Penrith Harmony, the talented Greg Weir and local group Tailgate.

Award-winning Matt Falloon and his ‘Trained Balloons’ will take entertainment all day to a new level.

In keeping with the museum’s theme, there will be demonstrations throughout the day by vintage-dressed firefighters showing off the skills of yesteryear as they put classic fire engines to work

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

Patrons will also have the opportunity to take a journey back in time on one of the vintage double decker bus rides.

Something for everyone including displays by Fire and Rescue NSW with live fire demonstrations of their Kitchen Fire Simulator together with the fascinating display’s of the Museum of Fire.
