Trucks, Tractors, and More

This year's Antique Truck Show was fantastic, with more vehicles than we have ever seen. It was their 25th anniversary celebration and not only did fleets come from our local area, but also from other states and Canada. As always, there were also vendors, tractors, engines, cars, and many other types of vehicles that participated. Dave and John brought up several of Dave's creations that we use around the property during our trail rides, including Dave's bicycles, the manure spreader driven by the Farmall tractor, the ever famous Cyclops, and this, the latest invention...the Jolly Trolley pulled by the David Bradley.
 (Thanks cousin Chuck for this great photo!)

Here are a few more photos of our favorites:
This Worthington Chief had two seats!

Chain driven early 1900's dump truck.

 Look close at this photo and you will see that this Sterling still has chain drive and it's from 1947.

 This fleet came all the way from Ontario Canada to be a part of the festivities.

A classic hit at every show is this fleet of petroleum delivery trucks through the years.

This is the way to go...two trucks for the price of one! (FYI it only costs $1.00 pp)

 How would you like to keep this spectacular trailer polished?

Our manure spreader that Dave turned into a cart (aptly named the 'Party Pooper'), also doubled as a picnic table!

Photo op of the day. This senior citizen stopped to rest on the Jolly Trolley. This show brings out so many people of all ages, but seniors led the pack.  I'm sure this annual event brings back many memories.
