Crawlin' The Hume
Members from many different Clubs including CHACA members, Dennis and Esther Healy(1945 Ford ¾ ton tray), John Egglestone(1938 Oldsmobile 1 ton tray) and Frank Mercuri(Fiat 5 ton tray) participated in the 3rd Crawlin' The Hume. The event started at the Ford Factory Campbellfield on Saturday 16th of April and the trucks travelled to Albury Racecourse using the Old Hume Highway as much as possible. The route went through many small towns where the residents lined the streets to catch a glimpse of the trucks
and listen to the air horns!
The trucks needed to be over 25 years old and ranged from Model T Fords to Kenworths and Peterbilts. There were 240 trucks in total, many towing trailers with tractors or other trucks on board.The event included lunch on Saturday at Winton Raceway where the bikes were racing, dinner on the Saturday night and breakfast on the Sunday morning.
It was a fantastic weekend. We need to upgrade to a speedier truck for next time which will be in two years time.
