Are any of you Brockway guys here in "Gods" country planning on attending the July 30th ATHS show in Lincolnton??? I know Glen, Brocky and I are planning to be there but there are more of us around. Lat years show was good and should be even better this year althoughnone of us are bringing a Brockway

Emery- :idea: there is a 50-50 chance I could meet up with you guys on July 30.
I was going to leave August 1 two pickup Terry in Atlantic City and then head to Cortland.
If I can clean up loose ends by July 29 I could probably meet up with you guys.
What city and state is show in and actual address if you have it this way I can Google it.
:roll: Thanks Tony

Tony, That would be Great! It's in Lincolnton and not far from interstate 77 and I-85. Hopefully Brocky will respond with the address soon so you can mapquest it, Or just google ATHS Lincolnton, NC.
I think we have a member here in Charlotte (Bob?) as well that we haven't heard from.

One of the next towns over from Lincolnton NC is Cherryville NC, past home of Carolina Freight Carriers, where the C Grier Beam Truck Museum (Carolina Freight) is open on weekends. Lots of old trucks, but the only Brockway, is a photo of a cabover sleeper.

The Museum has had a booth at the truckshow in the past, and Brad W has a restored Freightliner that looks simular to a CFCC tractor.

John, you are correct! It's well worth a side trip. They even have a sleeper/trailer converted to a movie studio. But alas no Brockways. Grier's story is a good one as well.

Tony

The show is in Maiden NC, north of Gastonia and south of Hickory on rt US 321 at exit 33 Startown Road. To Google put in Brad Wike farm in Lincolnton NC.

They will have good sinage from the exit. You will turn west and go about 1/2 mile to first main road north then go about 1 1/2 mile north. The show is on your left side. You cannot miss it.

Are you going to be driving your Brockway??? IF so just enter it!!

Brocky

:( No air conditioning in the pickup.
:P I will be traveling by car wit Addie my little dog.
Spoke to Brad on the phone have directions under control.
He has a Brockway for sale. 1964 C158T--#T963170
I said we would see him in and say hello. I also said if he sees 4 funny looking guys walking around wit Brockway shirts and hats that would be us.
He got a good laugh out of that. See you Saturday. Tony
