Allora crawling with magnificent shiny machines
ALLORA is gearing up for a big weekend of vintage and veteran cars and trucks, antiques, historical machinery and tractors.
Secretary of the Allora Heritage Weekend Association Ted Woodrow said it's going to be big.
"There something for everyone to see, from a 1940 Willys Army Jeep right through to a HD-11 Allis Chalmers crawler tractor, which is a pretty big one,” Mr Woodrow said.
The fun kicks off this morning and is expected to wrap up at 5pm today before another full day tomorrow.
"We've got a big roll up coming like they're going out of fashion,” Mr Woodrow said.
"A big contingent of trucks have already arrived from down south.”
The Warwick Veteran and Vintage Vehicle Club have worked hard for six months to get everything up and running for the historical weekend.
About 250 tractors are expected to make their way to Allora by the end of today.
"We've got a great swap meet this year for old machinery, cars and bric-a-brac,” Mr Woodrow said.
"Everyone should come to Allora today because it's the right thing to do.”
The Allora Heritage Weekend is on its 23rd consecutive year with crowds expected to reach more than 3000.
