On Tuesday, September 25 more than 100 vehicles over 100 years old will stop in Grenfell on their way to Forbes for the 2018 National Veteran Vehicle Rally.

The vehicles will descend on Forbes from Sunday, September 23 until Friday, September 28.

All of the vehicles will have been made before the end of 1918 meaning the majority will be well over 100 years old.

Entrants will be visiting from throughout Australia and will be keen to take in the beautiful countryside the district has to offer during their stay or on their way to Forbes.

During the week the cars will visit Parkes, Grenfell, Canowindra and Bedgerabong, passing through various towns along the way.

Many of the vehicles have gas headlights which will feature in a gaslight tour in Forbes during twilight on Wednesday, September 26.

The rally is being organised with the generous assistance of the Forbes Shire Council, the National Trust of Australia (NSW) and McFeeter’s Motor Museum.
