The biggest disappointment for me aside from the canceling of the Lights of the Night parade (due to bad weather) was not a single Brakebush rig showed up.  :-( :?

Aside from the usual Rollin and Eilen crew's trucks  personal favorites were the Moss and Marcotte Petes.  The Fairway Transit rigs were really nice too especially that black and orange T8.  The Potato King, Homers, and Zeller rigs were really nice too.  Even a Jade 389 showed up.

I saw Brandon's truck on Friday parked alongside Fond du Lac St.  Must have dropped the trailer somewhere.

Overall a good show.  As always.... alot more trucks showed up on Friday and left by Saturday.  Always worth the trip.

Whats the matter Steve. Are you afraid that some one might see you saying hi to me ? Do it again and I might head up to Lomira and wonder the streets yelling your name.... :|

Ha Ha....... Rather shy person here.  The only people I have ever met on the boards were Kevin Young and Richard Coash, and even than I had a cold and could barely get 2 words out at a time.  :x  That was 3 years ago. 

Nothing against you.... just the way I am.

I like both A models and the REO COE  :-D

Seen a really sharp Emeryville headed south yesterday in OH so I text Austin Harrison to ask him if it was at Waupun and he said it was. It was cream white over a dark blue or green with chrome trailer I think.

Very cool pics, happy you had a good time and met some good people. :-)

I'm with Charlie on the IT Pete, have fond memories and a soft spot in my heart for that company.

 I must have missed the Emeryville. Or it left on Friday. I guess a lot of guys left early because of the weather

I think the IT tractor is the best :-) Pretty sure the four digit tractor number indicates the West Coast and the three numbered trucks were East coast trucks.............. :-D

 Nope, not obligated to anyone this year. I learned my lesson after the horse manure from last year. Over 8 hours of work on my pictures for less than $100. Only problem, I'm having this year. is the show is starting to get stale and needs some new iron......

Hmm... I don't think I heard the story on that, but it doesn't sound like it was a pleasant experience. I briefly, and not very seriously, threw around the idea of trying to make some money on my photos, but I figured it wouldn't be worth it. I know if I tried to make money off it, it wouldn't be as fun any more. Plus, I'm not THAT good.

I've enjoyed what you posted so far. My favorite of the bunch is that 362. I look forward to seeing more.
