Heritage Weekend draws avid motoring enthusiasts

FROM the Gold Coast to Toowoomba, motoring enthusiasts flocked to the Allora Showgrounds for the annual Heritage Weekend.

Held over two days, rev heads had the opportunity to inspect a number of vintage cars, John Deere tractors, Kenworth trucks and Australian made motors.

It was the first time Gold Coast resident Ken Azzopardi had visited the Southern Downs, but the decision was one he doesn't regret.

"I am very impressed by the display of equipment and obviously the amount of people that are exhibiting that have come from a long way away," Mr Azzopardi said.

"Anyone that is into machinery or farming would chase this sort of thing, and it's all here."

Shocked at the size of the event, Mr Azzopardi said motoring weekends were events he would frequently chase.

"It surprised me how big it is, it really did," he said.

"I saw this event on Facebook, but I haven't been to one for years."

Rain didn't deter eager inspectors, with fellow Gold Coast residents Bob and Vivienne Barnes happy to support local communities.

"The good thing about coming out west, you don't have to worry about parking or it getting to busy," Mrs Barnes said.

"Anything that you can do coming out here, buying food and buying drinks, is helping the community."
