Muster aims for Australian Mack record


The HCVAQ Truck and Machinery Show is hoping for an Australian record by having the most Mack trucks at the one venue

By Greg Bush

This year the Historic Commercial Vehicle Association of Queensland (HCVAQ) is adding another dimension to its annual Truck and Machinery Show. The HCVAQ is inviting all owners of Mack Trucks to take part in the Mighty Mack Muster.

Both the show and the muster will take place at the Gatton Showgrounds in south-east Queensland on September 24 to 25 this year.

Owners of any make or model of commercial vehicle, including old tractors and machinery, are welcome to exhibit their pride and joy at the show.

The HCVAQ has grown in size over the years, outgrowing its originally venue at the Mt Gravatt Showgrounds in Brisbane, later moving to the Cleveland Showgrounds on the city’s bayside.

This year, however, organisers have decided to hold the show in Gatton to support the local community following the damage caused by this year’s devastating floods.

Admission fee is only $2 and organisers are hoping this will translate to a sizeable donation for the Lockyer District Flood Appeal. Entry is free to exhibitors.
