Harford Show this Sunday!!!

Postby oldspwr » Mon Aug 29, 2011 6:03 pm

Hey guys...

Just wanted to let everyone know that our local ATCA truck show is this Sunday at the Harford fairgrounds, halfway between Scranton and Binghamton on 81. This show usually has a strong Brockway turnout and last year Russ Bachman's yellow & green 360 won the Trucker's Choice. So Russ's truck will be on the show plaque as well!!!

Hope to see you there!

Thanks Tom! That poster has some great ideas for acknowledging participants. "Best Firetruck", Maybe; "Best prewar II Truck", "Best Post War II Truck". Best Gas Job, Best Diesel, "Best working truck" etc, etc. Just something to think/talk about. (best resto, best original) The possibilities are endless. Let's hear some ideas.

Maybe we can do that next year for the "Brockway Centennial", maybe a Cleanest Truck Award also?

Susan, That would truly be a tough one to judge! I think I saw Mike Pacitto eating his dinner off the floor boards in his blue beauty!! I could be mistaken because he says Armorall adds a distinct flavor!

Or Tom's 155. That red and white wonder is pretty clean too! A word of advise if you want a clean truck, don't paint it black!!!!

I prefer the Mother's Protectant over the Armorall, it has a less sweet flavor, by the way Emery, did you ever finish your tires? At the rate you were going you might have them ready fo next year.

LOL!! First off Stan!! Didn't you see that picture of Tom's truck with all the "clutter" in the cab? That's the only reason I failed to include him. (plus I beat up on him pretty regularly about his choice of wheels and I may need to ask a favor of him sooner or later) Hopefully he'll get it cleaned up by next year. As for Mike, I had considered telling this story on myself earlier but had decided against it. Now's the time.
The nite before the parade I had parked next to Mike's "Blue Beauty" (if you like modern trucks) and noticed Mike treating his tires with a Mother's product. I like a McGuire's product and told him about it. Pulled it out to show him and he seemed interested because I told him it lasted thru several washings and had a handy applicator. I approached the left front tire on my truck which was closest to where Mike was working and began to apply the treatment to the smooth sidewall. That went pretty quickly and then I realized that didn't look too good without treating the many (and I emphasize Many) lugs around the sidewall of these huge 24" tires. I started treating the nooks and crannies of the tire lugs and quickly realized "Oh Crap! this is gonna take forever" . I turned to see Mike standing there with a grin like a Chessar Cat from ear to ear and I had to smile at my own naivete'. Mike finished long before I I could complete that one (and only!) tire, and I knew he'd remember the incident and that I could expect to hear of it again, which I now have.
Good One Mike! BTW, I know you trailer that "Queen" in the open air. Did you happen to see the crate that 1932 oil truck arrived in??

Way to go Mike! Anyone that has some fun at Emery's expense is OK in my book!

Hey Mike!! I notice you didn't have any advice (experience) to offer when Stephen asked about "tips on Driving in the Rain!" :-)
(you're next Stan!)

Thanks, Mike.

Mike, I left it in upstate NY with the truck but it is a McGuire's product. I started out with a product called "Endurance" but haven't found it lately. It's basically the same as the mcGuire's product possibly just renamed. The applicators are available seperately in Pep Boys, Advance Auto etc. Gonna get that Cow cleaned up?
