Thanks to everyone for coming out to this years show at Macungie Memorial Park. We had fantastic weather, beautiful trucks and wonderful people which made for another one for the history books.

If you were able to attend the Family Reunion you should not have been disappointed. The fellowship, food and door prizes will not soon be forgotten.

Thanks to all of those who were able to lend a hand, if you weren't, please make plans to help out next year.

The Directors Choice truck is the Ford TT with the Studebaker trailer.

Glad to hear it wasn't a wash out like last year. Wish I coulda been there, but I didn't think it would be much fun walking the grounds on crutches and Doug wouldn't volunteer to wheel me around in my wheelchair...:lol:

I think there were some mud puddles here and there left over from last year. :lol:

And well done to the Judges, many, many people I talked to wanted that selection to win the "best of show" award.

The only disappointment was that I didn't run into Doug Maney. Fantastic show this year and it was my first time at the family reunion. You are correct sir, a good time had by all ! Don't forget the music, too, provided by CITIZEN'S BAND RADIO who not only rocked Friday and Saturday but travel in their own vintage bus ! How appropriate for the ATCA meet.

Hi guy's ,this was the 1st time I attended Macungie ,went on friday,but in 2011 we'll go on saturday ,(more trucks and vendors) it was a great show.

Try to make it Friday AND Saturday! This year was my first time at the Reunion picnic and it's a great time to hang with friends and meet new ones! Plus if you stay close by you can maximize your time on Saturday. Lots to see- almost 600 trucks this year!

I went to shows in Lincolnton,N.C. last year in July and Colfax,N.C. in November. Colfax is walking distance from you,and it was a really good show. Hope to make both again this year.

Greetings! You know how it goes, busy, busy, busy. Not much free time to chat. I have been trying to get my F-model in shape to make some shows this summer, and I have actually been running the road pretty hard this year, work broke loose after New Years and hasn't slowed down. That's a big change from last year. One of these years I will step into the 21st century and get a laptop so I can check in while I am in the truck.

Other Dog, if you want to see the Sightliner, Jim Moore (JEM out of Harrisonburg) always has it at Winchester.

I'm waiting for his next toy he has to make it's debut, a factory gas powered Emeryville from what I've heard.

Thanks Keith,Winchester is a great show also. Went to the first 2 they had but haven't made it back since.

Here's a copy of the flyer I got in the mail yesterday for the Lincolnton show,with directions and a phone no.
