Vintage Harvest 2014 (3)

This single cylinder Marshall just kept idling all day.
1926 Ford Model T.
Local car collector, Joe Morris, decided to give his 1978 Cadillac an outing.
Nearby was this 1976 Chev Impala.
Alan Mayo of Te Horo brought along his 1980  GMC Top Kick, which he initially discovered sitting in a field in New Mexico. After much renovation, including conversion to RHD, he had himself a very useable heavy duty truck.
Power is by a 220hp Caterpillar V8, driving through a 13 speed Roadranger
Alan also demonstrated his 1:6 scale Cat D11R, which he built himself. Powered by 2 mobility scooter motors, it can perform all the functions of the real thing by radio control.
Alan is obviously a very talented man.
Nice bright little Renault tractor.
The Burrell traction engine is obviously old technology,
but it appears the young man on board can't get by without his modern technology.
Ford Bonus in AA yellow.
Another Burrell in centrefield.
The fire appliance demonstration turned into a high pressure water fight.
