Rusty Iron Rally great for dads



John Howle, from Bowraville, had the ultimate Fathers Day gift yesterday when his son Wayne and grandsons Blake, 4, and Jared, four months, paid him a visit all the way from Sydney. Not even the weather dampened the family's plans to head along to the Rusty Iron Rally at Macksville, and Blake made the most of the male bonding session by sitting in the hot seat of this International Harvester. Hundreds of people took in the sights of the two-day event which included everything from tractor pulling to displays of vintage oil and steam engines.
