Saturday, June 17
The park was busy by the time we were awake, dressed, had the chapel in order, and were ready for breakfast.
We enjoyed sitting outside and watching trucks arrive – even thought it was drizzling.
It was a busy day on the chapel as Saturday is the best attended day of the show.
Jake offered to take us around the show on his borrowed golf cart before golf carts were discouraged due to the crowd of people.
It was interesting to meet Robert – who recently bought the Buffalo chapel. He plans to bring it to the show next year.
A classy way to move a camper.
I finally found a 1944 – my birth year – truck.
This truck was built when Cerwin’s mother was two years old.
This certainly fit into a truck show.
This little guy wasn’t impressed with the chapel. He wanted to see where the driver sat and drove the truck.
Doug Maney (right) put out two buckets at the picnic the night before and asked people to vote by donating money to ATCA. One bucket voted for him to shave his mustache of 30 years. The other voted for him to keep it. His Dad (left) wanted to get in on the pictures.
A final picture before he shaved his mustache.
He used the bumper of a Mack as a mirror.
Maybe I should keep half of it. 🙂
I guess not
I saw him at TFC’s Truck Rally a week later and he was still clean shaven.
Clyde Dieter and Warren High appreciated when Jake offered to take them around the park.
Denis Yaworski from Connecticut always comes to visit us. He usually brings his Doodle Bug.
When Jake saw the owner of our former chapel tractor, he went to ask him a few questions. He bought it from a friend who had it in a barn. He had more questions for Jake – wanting to know the history of the truck.
Our chairs were a popular place for drivers to rest after spending hours walking.
The owner of Denver Paint stopped by to talk to Cerwin. He painted the tractor that pulls this chapel.
That’s a cute ride.
Another nice ride
That’s creative. 🙂
People began leaving about mid-afternoon.
He dumped the rain water that had gathered in the bed of his truck before backing unto the lowboy.
The people on golf carts were lined up to watch trucks leaving.
Jesse (Chaplain Jake and Jane’s son) helped Cerwin pack up the steps.
It was good to be at Macungie ATCA again this year.
It started raining when we were about half an hour away from home.
If you like antique trucks, I have a lot more on my Facebook page album https://www.facebook.com/doris.j.high/media_set?set=a.10154689473262322.1073741869.612697321&type=3
