Classic Trucks

A cavalcade of classic trucks hit the streets of Dargaville over the weekend. Around 70 trucks from all over the country arrived on Sunday afternoon carrying 115 people, following a lunch and tour of the Kauri Museum. The truckers had a celebratory dinner at the Lighthouse Function Centre on Sunday evening, with proceeds going to prostate cancer research. Following a get together at the Dargaville Saleyards on Monday morning the trucks, drivers and passengers headed north to Kaitaia via Waipoua Forest.
