Restoring a piece of Truck Show history

Published: February 13, 2020

In 1968 our classic Thornycoft A1 made the perfect stage for the opening ceremony of the very first Queensland Truck Show, the event that grew to become today’s Brisbane Truck Show.

The collaboration between local industry members was the precursor to the formation of the Commercial Vehicle Industry Association of Queensland which was of course, where HVIA began.

Or even better – get involved! Contact Noelene Bradley on 07 3376 6266 – we’re still keen on your help and/or sponsorship.
