If you are a vintage machinery fanatic, then you can get a sneak preview of this year’s Rusty Iron Rally at Chaddies Store in Kempsey on Sunday.

Mid North Coast Machinery Restoration Club members will be setting up a display outside the store to show off some of their magnificently restored tractors and engines.

There will be plenty to look at and even more time to swap yarns and spare parts!

The actual Rally itself, the 23rd, will be held at the Macksville Showground on the Fathers’ Day weekend, September 1 and 2.

Highlights will be a celebration of 100 years of John Deere machinery as well as Australian-made engines, Holden and Ford cars plus Kenworth trucks.

Welcoming more than 150 exhibitors and around 5000 visitors, the much-loved vintage gathering is a must on any enthusiasts calendar. There will be markets and swap meets plus two parades daily. Gates are open from 9am to 5pm, family ticket $20. Phone John on 6569 3190 or Ted on 6562 6985
