Start your engines for the Allora Heritage Weekend
START your engines.
The gates will open to this year's Allora Heritage Weekend at 6am tomorrow morning and the event will provide the opportunity for everyone to witness a few priceless pieces of motoring history.
The event, which will run on both Saturday and Sunday, is organised annually by the Warwick Veteran and Vintage Vehicle Club and will feature various vehicles and machinery throughout history.
"You can see how it all works," WVVVC committee member Graeme McMillan said.
"It's a great way to educate young people too."
This year will feature International Harvesters, all things Holden, Harley Davidson motorcycles and Australian-made stationery engines.
There will also be a Cent Sale charity run for the Warwick Disability Support Group and a swap meet.
It all began in 1995 and since then has brought in crowds from all over Queensland and New South Wales.
"We started out with only ten vehicles," Mr McMillan said. "A few of us just wanted to get stuff out of our sheds - we had a few stationery engines."
Unlike past years, Mother Nature could be a little more forgiving this time around.
For three years the festival has suffered from rain - in 2011 it was cancelled altogether due to floods.
Saturday's forecast sees a possible late afternoon thunderstorm with around 1-5mm of rain.
However, Australia Day on Sunday should be welcomed with clear skies.
"Rain won't affect us," Mr McMillan said.
"With all the sun we've had lately it should dry it all out hopefully."
The Heritage Weekend will be held at the Allora Showgrounds and entry is $5.
