Anyone else go? 100's of 4b's there.. a Jeep on boggers and all.. shame its never been offroad!

Was my first visit to the pulls, and as the commentator told us 290348203948203948023948203948203948023948023948 times, a quick pull is a good pull... and I loved it. We missed the truck show, which was a bit of a bummer, most were leavin as we drove in.

Great day, pis sed with rain 20mins after we got there for 3 hours straight... but great day, twin rotary 460kg class was nice...

most of the big trucks/tractors were no show which was quite disappointing. one with triple 454's did ok.. had a bit of sniff.

The Vintage class was funny, these 1950's tractors doing their best, but man they were in great rebuilt condition.. IMMACULATE with new paint... very nice

Murray Muncher with its V12cyl aircraft engine 1710cubic inches was different!

Best showman - always TRYIN to do wheelies was the HQ ute

Commentator was the usual very average with plenty of IN jokes, which did the crowd no good. and nobody knew when the classes changed or which class was running.

$20 to get in was a bit rich, but wasnt all bad, kids free... so cheap day out. took own food, as usual prices for chips $3 and bleep .

I will be going to the next one at QUAMBATOOK

Gidday Truckster

In the last couple of years (through my job) I've spend half my life in Tooradin.The community spirit in the town is fantastic.

We're working on some very exciting projects at the moment and I'd encourage everyone to visit.

It may not be much now, but your visitation would certainely support the community.

Current projects include:

A new Tooradin Marine Education and Tourism Centre (great for the kids)
Bendigo Bank
Medical services
Redevelopment of the pub
Development of the Northern shopping strip
Possible Mini Marina
Redevelopment of the air strip
Al fresco dining over looking SawTells Inlet
Anchored potoon in Western Port for day trips and weddings
Return to a marine village theme

Problem I have is all those *&&%$# in Government that build brick walls!

G'day Truckster,
I was going to go to Tooradin, but rang a mate in Melbourne the day before and he said it was going to rain Saturday so it saved me a trip from Sydney.
But i went to my first one last year at Quambatook 2006. Bloody awesome. That was my first meeting ive been to and definitely not my last. I'll be going to Finley in NSW and Barmedman in NSW and again to Quamby at Easter.
All i can say is if you love the sound of BIG V8's at full throttle get to a tractor pull meet. You wont be disappointed
