Good weather, great atmosphere and a fine collection of commercial vehicles from decades past. A perfect day at this year’s Sydney Classic and Antique Truck Show.

 

Walking into the sun-filled grounds of Penrith’s Museum of Fire on May 29 for the annual Sydney Classic and Antique Truck Show was as good a trip back in time you could ever hope for.

Vintage truck shows have become increasingly popular over the years, and this year’s show at Penrith, the fifth running of the event, was arguably the most successful to date.
