Vintage Machinery Expo

I have one word for the Vintage Machinery Expo in Takapau this weekend.  Awesome.

Amazingly (but not surprisingly given my past history) I have more photos of people than vintage machinery. I’m not sure what I was doing when I was looking at the reason for being there… obviously not taking photos! The good news is that I was taking photos for fun and not for payment, otherwise I might not be asked back!

And I forgot to go back to buy a Junction Wines pinot gris & pinot noir with a special Expo label …

But here are some photos. Let’s put one of my favourite ladies at the top….

Muriel is in the fire brigade with me and she threatened to get me with the hose at the next practice if I took her photo... wonder what she'll do  when she realises it's on the internet....

Not quite vintage, but fun!
