Just out of curiosity, is anyone NOT planning on attending Macungie this year due to high fuel prices?? Are you clamping down on any of your other antique show attendance???? The 140GZ Waukesha in my FWD firetruck is thirsty, and the kids need to eat......So the firetruck is going to be sitting a lot this summer....... :angry:

I spoke to many fellow antique truckers about this very topic, and most said they will pick and choose what shows to attend...Macungie to most is a "will never miss" on most lists.

FWD, just kinda thinkin' like Hellertown is what, about 18 miles from Macungie.... 36 mile round trip...even at $5 per gallon, at let's say 4 MPG, that's around $45 for the weekend in gas. Just thinking out loud, sorry.

Oh dont get me wrong.....Macungie is too close to me, and too good NOT to go to. But there are other shows, such as firetruck musters that I will have to say no to. The fire company that originally owned my piece is having a parade on May 31 and they asked me to attend, hard to say no to, but it's about 45 miles one-way, and I'll have to feed it. I wanted to take in the annual show at Sayre's International in Conshohoken, Pa. but thats one I'll fuggeddabout in lieu of Macungie.

There are lots of local car shows that I always go to, less than 20 miles away. But of course I always like the big truck shows and fire musters.

[i have to agree with you there, I wouldn't miss Macungie even though I have to drive from Willow Grove, PA. which will probably be the only truck or car show outside of Bucks or Montgomery Counties for me, especially with these high gas prices. Out of curiosity, where is that parade you are referring to on May 31?. I also have gone to some of them and remember seeing the 1958 FWD before. /quote]

Bryn Athyn Fire Company will be having a housing parade for their new 2007 Spartan/Toyne Pumper on May 31. Lineup is at the Bryn Athyn Elementary School on Tomlinson Road. Parade steps off at 12 Noon. You may have seen the truck in the Cheltenham Car Show, or perhaps the Pa. State Firemans Assoc. Parade in Conshohocken 2 years ago???? I have also had it in the Bucks County Firemans Assoc Parade in Quakertown. I have a list of local car/truck shows if you are interested, PM me your email address.

Whereabouts in Willow Grove are ya from? I was born & raised in Bethayres. If you have been around long enough you may remember my father parking his F-Model tractor at Chucks Gulf at Huntingdon Pike & (lower) Welsh Rd.

Just a reminder, there are deadlines for the preregister only areas at the ATCA National Meet. If you are planning on attending, check the show info on preregistration for camping, Truck Corral or Flea-Market. There is a sign up sheet for the Friday night ATCA Family Reunion, last year was a blast, we want to see you there this year!

Doug- What time can I show up on Friday? If I get there early enough I'll help out for a bit.

Well, it looks like I'll be attending my first Macungie show and camping out on my way to NY to visit relatives. I got an email that the guys from Massena will be attending and one of them told me to get my butt to Macungie with my truck. Well, as Doug knows, it's only partially my truck :rolleyes: so I will just be there to BS with the rest of ya'll and get ideas on what to do with mine when it arrives. :D

I'll end up saving fuel in the long run as I had planned on going all the way up to Massena to visit Dan and Mike and some of our old neighbors. Guess the neighbors will have to hope for the fuel prices to at least stabilize before I make another run up there. :(
