Having it at 2914 Sandy Ridge Rd. in Colfax, Nc on 10-28-2017.
It's going to be at the Farmer's Market, very nice place with a lot of different "stuff".
Curious if anyone is going, I'm planning on taking my Ultraliner and maybe hauling the Diamond Reo or Autocar on a flatbed. :)

Wreckerman,
     Went to Corbitt days in Henderson, N.C. today. Hope to see you there. I'll be set up selling DCP, Tonkin & Neo models. I'll be the guy without hair.

Batch two.

First, an awesome Smokey and the Bandit Kenworth W900A with matching reefer.


A cool Mack B model wrecker.


A really sharp Pete 352.


A cool KW W900A.
The glare on the right of the photo is my Mack’s windshield, I was putting some stuff in the sleeper, and leaned out the door just in time to get the KW before it left.


A cool White COE for Fredrickson.


A very nice Pete 359.


A very cool GMC Crackerbox.


A nice Mack with two Mack fire trucks on a tiltbed.


A White for Thurston.

Damn, this looks like a very neat show to go to, I might pencil it in for next year. Gotta love the Smokey and the Bandit W900, but I'm sure that rig has admirers for days. My favorites are the White's for Fredrickson, Thurston, and the Crackerbox.

Hey, thanks guys!
Here’s batch three of four.

First, a Brown tractor for Associated Transport.


An extremely sharp Mack Superliner from the Keystone Truck Museum.


A cool Mack Anthem up in the dealer section.


A neat Corbitt tractor for Gulf.


A cool Mack wrecker for Mack Trucks.
This truck was at the lot where the Chief Anthem and Volvo SuperTruck were from my catches thread, so I assume when one of Volvo/Mack’s test trucks break down, they send this to go get it.


A neat White mixer for Shoaf Concrete.


A very nice Autocar tractor.
As a side note, this truck sounded extremely good, probably the best sounding rig of the day! 8)


An interesting FL COE.
When this truck pulled out, it was putting out some serious oil smoke just idling, hopefully they’ll get that fixed, and don’t just run it until it dies. :-\


A very sharp Pete 359 for David Strickland.


Fourth and final batch coming up! ;)

Final batch.

First, a distance shot of a nice rig...


And the up close shots.
An extremely cool Pete 359.


And a very cool IH Transtar 4300.


A clean Chevrolet Bison for Lewis Motorsports.


A very nice Dodge Bighorn wrecker.
A bit of history I learned on it: it was originally a tractor in Chicago hauling fuel, then the wrecker bed was put on it by a father and son team, eventually the father retired and the son wanted to rebuild and change the truck. The father wouldn’t let him, and made him sell the truck. It sat in a barn for years, and at one point the barn collapsed in on it. After that the current owner got it and made it as you see here. As a side note, it only towed about 5 vehicles throughout its career, so it’s like new.


A somewhat rough Mack B.


And lastly some shots of my stuff. ;D
First, one of our flatbeds hauling our Truck Show Touring Vehicle(golf cart).


My Mack at the show.
When we first got there a fellow wanted to know if the Diamond Reo was for sale. Of course, I said no.


Lastly, us leaving the show and rolling some coal. 8)


That’s all for my shots of the show, really looking forward to the next one!
