Chicago Auto Show 1957

Recommended Posts

I had a friend in grade school whose father won one of these little Thunderbird replicas in some kind of contest. We had tons of fun riding that thing, when it wasn'r broken down ( which it was most of the time ) that kid grew up to become a counterman in the parts dept at a local Mack dealership and later on to be general manager at another dealership.

Great pictures, from when Mack Trucks was an American icon. Really good to see that LRVSW.

I see a B-model ladder truck (fire apparatus) in the middle. Given the show's location and the truck's spec, it must have been for the Chicago Fire Dept.

And over to the right is a famous piece, the Mack "Bus of Tomorrow" !
