If you haven't been following ...
One of the favorite shows on the Stovebolter Calendar, the Tri-State Antique Truck Show
] is this weekend (12-23 Sept) at Frederick County Fairgrounds -- 250 Fairground Rd, Clear Brook, VA 22624. Clearbrook is just a couple of exits north of Winchester, VA on I-81. "Tri-State" is a regional show for the American Truck Historical Society -- America's pre-eminent antique truck club and major advocate for our hobby. The regional show also raises a lot of money for local charities.
You can read a lot of banter, ribbing and other jocularity in the ODSS Forum
(and find it confusing if you've yet to experience this confabulation of Middle Atlantic Seaboard Stovebolters...
), but the straight skinny is this:
The Winchester show is three days of friendship, fellowship, relaxation and enjoyment of up to 500 antique trucks from all around the region and of all sizes (from mini trucks to the largest tractor trailer units). Stovebolters from the region have long come to enjoy this show as a relaxed forum to camp together, enjoy a LOT of old trucks, share information and skills and help each other out. There is usually a project or two that gets worked on in "Camp Stovebolt" through which we socialize and share knowledge.
We've got the weekend agenda posted
for more info.
Please join us if you can -- it's truly a fun show.
