A.T.C.A. Show at Redmens Lodge in Fruitland

This past Saturday at the Redmens Lodge in Fruitland the local chapter of the Antique Truck Clubs of America held their annual truck & tractor show show. More than 70 trucks and tractors were on hand for visitors to view and appreciate the hard work that goes into restoring these classic vehicles. Everything from pick-up trucks to tractor trailers were on hand and I have to say these restored vehicles were simply awesome.

Much of the field adjacent the the Redmen's lodge was filled with vehicles. To the right is just a few of the restored big rigs on display.

Diamond in the rough?

This 1950 Mack dump truck was brought in by Tom Zacuy from Philadelphia. I didn't get to meet Mr. Zacuy but my guess is he has just recently acquired this truck and as you can see it is in rough shape. I sure hope he brings it back another year after it is restored.

Fred Moore of Allen owns this restored 1926 Chevrolet delivery truck. The wood on this truck is absolutely beautiful and it is easy to see a great deal of care has gone into it's restoration.

Also owned by Fred Moore is this 1936 Farmall tractor. Another beautiful restoration. Notice the steel rear wheels with steel cleats. Wow! Talk about traction.
This show was a real treat for the lover of antique trucks and tractors. Hopefully they will back again next October with another show.

As an airplane enthusiast I have been trying to reach other people who feel strongly like I do about this. I think that a great way to get us out of this deficit is to put money into alternative ways of shipping cargo and people. I think that these new Zeppelins are a great way to make that happen. Besides the fact that they are pretty nifty they could really help us get carried out of this deficit Just Another Option
