The weekend of February 17-18 is unmissable for anyone interested in the history of farming in New Zealand.

The Tauranga Vintage Machinery Club’s 40th anniversary is being celebrated with a mega exhibition of vintage tractors and stationary machinery. 

Many items included in the display are unique – and this is a rare opportunity for the public to see them in action in one place at one time. 

The club was established in 1984 by Rex Williams and Kevin Pinkerton.

Rex’s sons Larry and Russell are key members of today’s club and will be displaying a significant amount from their family collection.

Along with contributions from local members, further entries are expected from neighbouring clubs – making this an extraordinary event for town and country folk alike.

“Our focus is on having as many items as possible working so there will be something for everyone to see and participate in over the weekend,” says chief organiser Larry Williams.

The Tauranga Vintage Machinery Club Inc 40th Anniversary Expo is happening on February 18, 2024, at Tauranga Racecourse.
