"Machinery in Motion" inaugural rally - Jan 2013

P1010730 - Copy On Friday, 18 January Ron Ross and Brad Dwyer arrived at the Gosford Showgroud to set up camp for the "Machinery in Motion" rally by the Central Coast Machinery Club.  The temperature of the day was a scorching record breaking 46 degrees celsius.  All that Ron & Brad could do was to pitch the tent roof and sit under it to keep cool.

P1010717 - CopyWhat a difference a day makes.  Saturday 19th was overcast, warm but pleasant with the occasional breeze. For a first time show it was small but well set out. There was a handful of vintage trucks, cars, speed-cars and stalls with the usual bits and pieces for sale.

  < One particular truck that caught my eye was this beautifully restored 1926 International model  SL36 .  It is a very unique truck.  The SL36 originally had a six cylinder Lycoming engine but somewhere down the track the six was replaced with the four cylinder Lycoming engine of the SL34.

Inside the show ring there were numerous stationery engines on display with some running. Six of our members were there to fly the flag of the WSHTC.

The team awoke Sunday morning to the sound of rain falling. A disappointment after the day before.  After breakfast the decision was made to up-stumps early and head for home.

We look forward to next year's rally.
