Talk about a haven for classic trucks, fantastic shots Charlie! I agree with you on the International COE, that is the star of the show. Everything on it looks appropriate for the period.

                  You have to make the trip next year. Not sure how many trucks were there but it had to be over 700 maybe plus you'd get a chance to meet a bunch of fellow Hanksters. ;D

                  I thought you'd like the Proctor COE. 8)

Of course, I'm really liking the Ultraliner. ;D
The orange W900, the Oshkosh wrecker, the El Turbo Pete, and the 4-door Superliner are also standing out for me, very nice rigs.  8)

I probably said I was gonna make it this year after your coverage of last year IIRC, but next year I'd love to make the trip as it's not too far north for me.

In the absence, thanks for your coverage. Most of these are nice, but the star of the show is the FLB for me. That is just a classic look for a truck, and it wins over all the COE's hands down. I thought the needle nose Pete with the big bunk was interesting, but feel like they are trying to do too much with that rig. The Superliner is also another nice catch too.

Who all made it this year?  Sounds like at least Charlie and Gary, and looks like Rick Sousa made the trip.

 Quite a few of us Paul. I saw Gary, The Yellow Line (Chris), Rick, Brockway (Karl), Dave Balko, Greg_E, Chris_E, Rich Reinhart & soapman (Ivory). Saw Dockmen027's Pete but John was at the plant.
