Old Shows in July That May Be New to Some
Karen O’Brien

The Eventer

Branching out to attend different types of shows can be a great idea. I recently stumbled upon a terrific display of trucks at an antique tractor show. On July 8–10, 2016, the South Lake County Agricultural Historical Society hosted its 32nd Annual Antique Tractor and Farm Show at the Lake County Fairgrounds in Crown Point, Indiana. It’s the largest tractor show in the county and features hundreds of tractors spanning the last century of farm progress from the huge Case … Read the rest of the story…

This month I am going to try something different. I have been eagerly awaiting this blog because I have wanted for a while to include our readers in what I do here. This month I have that chance to supply you with a salvage yard in Wisconsin that I have personally only been to twice, and it was well before I was writing about trucks. It has always been my intention to jump all over the country to give our … Read the rest of the story…

July Features Cool Shows in Small Towns
Karen O’Brien

The Eventer

Car shows, cruise nights, club outings, and national meets are in full swing during July, and there are enough events to fill your show calendar without traveling too far from home. One of my favorite events occurs the second weekend of July and is worth making a pilgrimage to central Wisconsin—the Iola Old Car Show and Swap Meet. The small town of Iola, Wisconsin, swells from a year-round population of 1,200 to more than 100,000 during the massive three-day event … Read the rest of the story…

The yard we are going to spotlight today is B&B Auto Salvage, Ltd. of Upper Marlboro, Maryland. B&B has the reputation of being the best salvage yard in Maryland for obtaining vintage Mopar parts.

One Fine Day in June for Car & Truck Shows
Karen O’Brien

The Eventer

I think I’ve found the best show day on the entire calendar. No, really. Summer show season offers a wide variety of events, some local and others that you’ve already planned around vacation time. But I came across one day that offers shows in almost all states of the continental United States that are sure to be a hit with truck owners. June 4, 2016 is my pick as the best show day of the year, so start making plans … Read the rest of the story…

Vintage Vehicles Come First at Auto Express Inc.
Joe Sharretts

junkyard

The best salvage yards out there are not always the biggest or the most stocked. Sometimes the greatest ones are the ones where the owner and staff all love what they do. At Auto Express, Inc., the older inventory comes first. There are about 1,000 cars and trucks currently in the inventory, and only about 100 of those would be considered vintage. However, inventory is always growing, and the staff save all they can, especially if they think the vehicle … Read the rest of the story…
