George Wallis is a part of the farming fabric in Wanaka as a rural contractor for over 30 years.

He is an enthusiast of international trucks and harvesters as well as a McCormick-Deering collector.

Mr Wallis speaks to the Rural Exchange team about his love affair with the brands that broke in the country around Wanaka and the special truck he courted his wife in.

This week’s “Character of the Country” will be retiring his collection to a museum soon to be open near the Wanaka Airport.
