Thanks for the tour.
Funny you mention that. My feet bother me a good bit from time to time and that weekend was one. I knew from the beginning the feet weren't going to feel too good by the end of the day. I was saying a golf cart may be in my future. I hope not, though. Walking is best.

One very impressive thing there is the quality of lettering and pinstripe on some of those trucks. It's the only time I've seen my buddy, who is an old school sign painter/trick paint artist, admire someone else's work. You can make it as good as you want if you're willing to pay. But, you have to find someone with that much talent first.

Another thing is the variety. Anything truck, from little Austin Bantam Panel truck that Mickey Mose could drive to that Mack off road dump. One feller brings several trucks down from Canada. That's no small feat!

This is ATCA's (Antique Truck Club of America- www.antiquetruckclub.org) annual show and it is always there in Macungie, PA Fathers Day weekend. ATHS (American Truck Historical Society- www.aths.org) moves their show to a different part of the country each year, and that one is last weekend in May. In '15 it came to York, PA and it was quite a show. Last year it was in Oregon, this year was Iowa, and next year is Kentucky. Local Chapters have their shows, ours is first Saturday in May. You might see as many as 100 trucks, but nothing like the national shows. We also have the Tri-State show in Sept. That is the Maryland, VA/WVA (I know, really is quad state), and PA chapters. We get 300+ there.

Thanks for the Link Tim, I will check them out to maybe see if they will every be in the area or have a small chapter here in the area.

Re: ATCA National Show '17-Macungie, PA

You're welcome. I'm happy to share them and have them enjoyed. If you never saw it, here is the thread from last year's show. You'll see different and some of the same trucks:
