More than 150 trucks, a 1908 Republic Touring Car and stationary and steam engines.

That's just a few of the highlights for the 2018 Yesteryear Truck and Machinery Show set for the Wauchope Showground on Saturday and Sunday July 14, 15.

Show secretary Greg Cavanagh said there will also be plenty of other things to see and do.

"This year's show will feature historic and late model working trucks, tractors, machinery, stationary engines, vintage cars and motorcyles," he said.

"Already, some 17 exhibitors from Sydney have indicated they will be attending while the Hastings Auto Restorers will have about 60 vehicles for the display.

"We had about 150 trucks last year and it is more than likely that we will see an increase on this for the 2018 event.

"There will be plenty of tractors too.

"One of the features will be a 1910 Republic Touring Car. It is making a return to Wauchope for this year's event.

"On display will be fully restored vehicles and machinery and some items still unrestored or better known as still in their “working clothes”."

Mr Cavanagh said the event would attract support from right across NSW.

Couple with the displays will be the swap meet stalls while Wauchope Lions and the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service's fundraising group will also be providing food and drinks.

The show makes for great family entertainment with a lot of history on show. 

There will parades on both days so people can see and hear this old gear actually in action, Mr Cavanagh said.

The Yesteryear Truck and Machinery Show is at the Wauchope Showground on Saturday July 14 from 9am until 4pm and Sunday July 15 from 9am until 2pm.

Admission is $8 per adult while children under 12 years are admitted free.
