Mack NZ 50 Year

Mack NZ 50 Year Anniversary Truck Show

2022 was a special year for Mack in New Zealand - it marked the 50th Year that Motor Truck Distributors commenced assembly and sales of Mack trucks in New Zealand. To mark the occasion, we held a 50th Anniversary Truck Show, at the Manfeild Racetrack, Feilding, to bring together the people and trucks that helped make the Mack brand what it is in New Zealand today.

There were over 170 trucks on display and the event concluded with a lap around the Manfeild Racetrack. Below is a selection of truck footage taken at this truly unique Mack Truck Show.
