Glistening paint, classic curved wheel arches and vintage vehicle styles were all on show at the Sydney Classic And Antique Truck Show for our Empire Group Home residents, as part of The Afford Lifestyle.

The Afford Lifestyle is About You
The Afford Lifestyle is the support our staff deliver to you to ensure you can get involved in the local community events, make new friends and enjoy activities that interest you.
Socialise with Friends
The housemates and good friends of the Empire home, Wesley, Joseph, Marcus and Matthew, all have an interest in cars. The annual truck show in Penrith is one event that they love to attend, so Afford Lifestyle Assistants, Vicky and Pauline, made sure it was on their calendar to attend.
Featuring vehicles that dated back to the 1950s, the Empire friends walked through the gates of the show and were instantly captivated by the different look and styles of the vehicles.
The four friends, along with their Lifestyle Assistants, Vicky and Pauline, roamed around the show looking at all the vintage cars and trucks and commenting about how cars have changed.
The group stopped to talk to many of the exhibitors and shook hands and took photos with the firemen and the ladies in front of the big fire truck.
Enjoy Your Favourite Activities and Events
On such a beautiful day, the group even had the chance to eat their favourite flavoured ice-creams and sit back and enjoy the music played by the live band at the show.
Residents felt like they were taking a step back in time during their visit to the show. One resident even commented: “This truck looks like my dad’s old farm truck.”
The Afford Lifestyle is all about supporting you live the life you want under the NDIS. We’re here to create opportunities for you to enjoy activities that matter most to you.
