The Historic Commercial Vehicle Club's South Australian Branch members will make a stopover in Whyalla enroute to Port Lincoln on Wednesday, September 18.

Trucks and commercial vehicles of many different types meet three times yearly in different locations within the state and will meet at Port Lincoln on the weekend of the 21st and 22nd.

Whyalla seemed like a perfect place to break the trip especially as some of the vehicles don't travel very quickly and are coming from as far away as Mt Gambier, Jamestown and Adelaide within South Australia and Croydon, Highett and Lancefield in Victoria.

The members will be visiting the Mt Laura Museum on Ekblom Street on Wednesday and the trucks will be parked for display between 10:30am and 1pm with members of the public welcome to come and wander around to look at these vehicles.

Dave Horne will travel from Victoria in his 1934 Bedford.

All vehicles are road registered and have been driven from their home base to Whyalla and eventually on to Port Lincoln and then all the way home again!

Vehicle ages range between Whyalla members John and Janiece McWaters' 1920 W&G Du Cros to more modern vehicles such as a 1987 Ford F150.
