Toowoomba Vintage Rally, Queensland

Post by John.Newman » Thu Feb 23, 2012 7:54 am

For anyone here in Oz who can make it to Toowoomba on the 3rd & 4th March, we are holding our annual rally where the theme this year is "All Things British". Hopefully, there will be some DBs there. I know there will be a 50D along with my 50TD on show.

Regards,
John

Nice line up of the proper old stuff there Paul, I take it that is your newly restored Cropmaster.

Is that a `blower` on the front of the 50TD John. I didn`t realise W O Bentley had an influence on David Browns - must try one for the Cropmaster, now then all I need is a Villiers Supercharger, pipework, rear spolier and a safety belt - `Cropmaster Le Mans`!!!!

Cheers

Andy.

I take it its for the hydraulics??????

Yes I read the brass plate on it and it is for the external hydraulics but I am sure John will explain more in due course.

Thanks for posting these Paul. You beat me to it probably because it took me longer to put my tractors to bed after the show. Yes Andy, it makes it go faster - just like a spoiler on a car. The hydraulics and blade are a work in progress and a lot of welding is still needed to tighten all the joints up.
Some more photos will come soon after I get them resized.

As the Flyer said "All Things Britsh" was very true. Even the weather was very British like with light showers during the first day. Here are a few more photos that I took over the week-end.
