Lexington Kentucky maths show

Recommended Posts

i guess the ATHS doesn't like the Northeast? kinda a shame since i thought Syracuse and Springfield mass along with York were decent shows. Springfield did leave a little to be desired but it seems like they don't plan on returning to the Northeast anytime soon.

I never attended any ATHS shows until York.  I heard Baltimore was a "disappointment".  I thought York was an excellent venue, better than Des Moines (my 2nd ATHS show).  DM was spread out and seemed disorganized.  Also the hotel shuttle service left a lot to be desired.  Lexington KHP is huge but the layout of the show appears better than DM.  You need to take a shuttle from the show area to the hotel shuttle pickup/dropoff spot.  Otherwise a looonnngg walk.

I recall when Lexington Mack took on the Dodge truck franchise, in addition to Mack. They had a row of D-series pickups out front, and a new massive Big Horn being prepped for delivery. The management was thrilled with their new and broad Dodge range.

That Farmall Hoopty is owned by our own Stan Walls.  He still lurks around the internet but doesn't post much.  That's his little blue camper in the background.

That’s a really sharp service truck.

We tore up our swindle sheets and crashed the gate doing 98.  Let them buns roll........10-4!

Farmer and I ran home together.  Nice sunny drive. The roads....questionable.....but had a good run.

Glad to hear it wasn't me that broke the camera....LOL!!   Glad to meet you Ed.  Also had Baddog stop by this afternoon while I was sitting around waiting to leave.  I think there were a few others that introduced themselves, not just from BMT, but other places that know of me(besides the LAW ;) ).

Yea buddy!  Gotta deliver those potato rolls while they are still fresh!  71 was the worst road from Cincy to Columbus (OH road tax dollars at work - NOT).  I had "air ride" - my a$$ was about 6" off the seat!  Got home and mowed the yard...finished in the dark...forecast for rain on Sunday.  Leaving for PA on Monday morning.

Great time at Lexington.  Besides Freightrain...talked with David, maint1, Brocky, MHfred, and several others.  Enjoy seeing the trucks but enjoy meeting and talking with the people.  Saw mackdaddy in passing.  Also met Hippy 70mackMB and his son.

Larry - great timing leaving Lexington.  I was about a half mile south of you when you entered I75.  Saw what looked like a white/black B with black trailer.  I put the hammer down and eventually caught up with you.

We were coming back from vacation in Florida, stayed south of Lexington Saturday night. When we got on 75 Sunday morning and saw some nice old trucks on the highway, I gave myself such a dopeslap for missing the show.

Freightrain and Farmer52, you got that right about I-71. From Apalachicola Florida to Columbus that was the absolute worst road we saw.

Friend about destroyed his golf cart while riding on the rear of his drop deck.  They had to stop and adjust it.  Then had to repair broken alum brackets when he got home.   Those old solid axle trailers are neat looking, but not pleasant for items strapped on top.
