Broad­ford Vic­to­ria will host the in­au­gu­ral Spirit of the Hume Truck Dis­play on Fe­bru­ary 18 and 19, 2017.

The His­toric Com­mer­cial Ve­hi­cle Club (HCVC) is or­gan­is­ing the event with sup­port from Mitchell Shire Coun­cil and as­sis­tance from lo­cal res­i­dents in­clud­ing Archie Baines, An­nette Chap­man and Ash­ley Chap­man.

Archie en­cour­ages own­ers of clas­sic trucks, cars, mo­tor­bikes, trac­tors and other ve­hi­cles to ex­hibit their ma­chines at the static dis­play. Ex­hibits must be at least 25 years old.

A din­ner dance at Broad­ford Shire Hall on Satur­day night, Fe­bru­ary 18, will be a high­light of the new event. The truck show will take place at The Com­mon, on the cor­ner of Murchi­son and Piper Streets, Broad­ford.

Peo­ple wish­ing to dis­play their ve­hi­cles do not have to book. For safety rea­sons, Archie urges own­ers to have their ve­hi­cles in place be­fore 9am each morn­ing.

Static en­gines, mod­els, live mu­sic and cater­ing will en­sure an en­joy­able week­end for clas­sic truck lovers.

Broad­ford is less than 90km from Mel­bourne’s CBD. To make it eas­ier for dis­abled peo­ple to at­tend, buses will meet trains at the Broad­ford rail­way sta­tion. Or­gan­is­ers will also hire dis­abled toi­lets.
