Looks like rain for the weekend.Fri,Sat,Sun. I made the mistake of going when it rained the day before. Nothing but mud. I'll keep an eye on the forecast. It will be a last minute decision. Carl

Weather looks like 50% chance of T storms both Friday & Saturday so right now I'm planning on being there. Really sucks when the week before you're looking forward to something the weather is sunny and cool then the rains come on the day you want sunshine. ::)

Isn't that how it always happens? We have a mandatory company picnic tomorrow that's been planned for a month, last Friday the forecast said sunshine, now it says rain/thunderstorms. No make up date either, because this thing already pissed off all the other departments that rely on us for fleet maintenance. It is what it is though. Hope for your sake the good weather pulls through though.

Got lucky.........the rain stopped just as i walked into the show & it was fine until I left several hours later. :) I think the threat of rain kept folks away & quite a few trucks too but overall a good show, quite a bit of new stuff & always good to catch up with fellow Hanksters although no group pic this year. Enjoy the photos from the show & feel free to add your own everyone.

Damn that's some great stuff Charlie, love the orange Mack Superliner dump truck, the Mack COE for Ralph Smith, and the black/white Marmon COE is a beauty too.

Glad you took the time to go even with the threat of rain, not nice when it rains on the parade, we went to a car show this past weekend too,  we had to book a hotel and ferries etc, so canceling is no good. The rain staid away for the show thank goodness but the cold wind felt like January :(. Nice to see your pictures of some very nice looking trucks!

Jim.

Thanks Charlie.. I could guarantee you if I went it would have rained cats and dogs. I was not feeling up to par so stayed home and relaxed.

Bill Banks thought you might be going to Macungie but when I saw the forecast I figured it might have changed your mind. Might see ya at Englishtown. :-\
