Mack Truck Muster set for March 21

By Kyabram Free Press

THE Mack Truck Muster and Vintage Engine and Machinery Rally is set to roar into the Kyabram Showgrounds for two days of fun for all ages.

Supported by Campaspe Shire, exhibitors from far and wide will be there to show off their treasured collections on March 21 and 22.

The Vintage Engine Rally has been held for more than 20 years and the numbers and diversity of displays continues to grow.

Residents will get a kick out of seeing the stationary engines all chugging away, as well as the old tractors and majestic steam engines from days gone by.

The old feral utes are also a favourite and gather many a photo and comment.

The younger generation always appreciate seeing, and the older generation appreciate revisiting, the many working displays which include sheep shearing, the many blacksmiths in action, sleeper cutting, hay pressing, mini steam engines, working meccano display and much more.

The memorabilia is also a highlight, with different displays each year.

The Kyabram Mack Muster, which holds the record for the most Mack trucks in the one place at the one time in Australia, is run in conjunction with the Vintage Engine Rally.

Many of the trucks and spectators travel from interstate just to be a part of the event.

Keeping to the theme of the weekend, some of the trucks will be restorable, and others will be magnificently restored.

The owners of the trucks love talking to interested enthusiasts and showing them the work that has been done on their pride and joy.

Entry fee is $5 per adult and children under 16 are free.
