Re: ATCA National Show '17-Macungie, PA

Here's another interesting truck that was for sale. It was probably a former fire truck. It had the 347/Hydraglide w/2spd rear!

Re: ATCA National Show '17-Macungie, PA

This Studebaker was rally cool. I caught the guys unloading it andgot the story of it. It was owned by a Stude dealership and started off being a flatbed till '47. They needed a wrecker so they took the bed off a new 47 pickup and put the flatbed on that to sell. '47s are wider so they had to narrow the bed. Rear wheel track is the same so they added spacers between the bed and fenders. Custom-built out of necessity from Studebakers by a Studebaker dealer to haul Studebakers.

Great pics. That Biederman looks like the truck MP&C built the fenders for.

Re: ATCA National Show '17-Macungie, PA

[QUOTE=special-K;7972448]Oh ok, that was your truck! I regret never walking over there, now. My friend, Chuck, and I talked to your buddies last year on Friday night. Had a couple beers with them. So they've been into those a long time and are friends from way way back? The show passes so fast and this year on Friday we had people stopping by us so we never left the truck. Always great no matter what

I worked with Tommy, the owner of the command car, he's had it since 85. Last year I came early on Saturday. He ended up buying a 36 1 ton flatbed that was for sale in the loading area, handsome little truck. Wish it was a longer show.

I don't know who MP&C are, but they very well may have built those. Tell me more. All I know is the owner John Vanetta is from here in MD and has been working on that truck for years. I've heard about it and this is the first time it's been out, that I know of.

It really is too short to fully enjoy it all. It's a lot of trucks to see and you need to go over them several times to fully appreciate the one next to the one that grabbed your eye last time. Then there are the people. The friendliest happiest bunch of people gathered in one place. You make friends with those people and some you only see there. Te swap meet, swimming pool, and they offer tours of the Mack plant. We talk about taking that tour, but that's a big whole out of the short day. The show starts on Thursday I think. But 1/2 the trucks are there till Saturday when it seems no sooner has the last one shown, the first one is leaving

Re: ATCA National Show '17-Macungie, PA

You can look way down in our forums in Alternate Tinkerings. They have a thread called (55 wagon progress). If you want to see some real metal working skills. Look far enough into the thread and you will see the truck.

Re: ATCA National Show '17-Macungie, PA

Thanks. I started going through the thread but computer's moving sluggish. I'll look later. But I see MP&C is in the same town as John. I think that's a BINGO! Definitely some top metal working skills going on there. Good to know of him
