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…

April Shows Accept More Than Cars and Trucks
Karen O’Brien

The Eventer

Now that spring is officially here, it’s time to plan ahead and find some shows to attend. If you’ve never attended an all-truck show, maybe this is the year to try one. Or, maybe you’re looking for shows that offer a wide variety of vehicles. I’ve noticed that a lot of shows around the country are welcoming vintage motorcycles and not just classifying them in a general “Special Interest” class.

Hammond’s Auto Exchange is Maryland’s Junkyard Gem
Joe Sharretts

junkyard

At one point, Hammond’s Auto Exchange of Williamsport Maryland, near Hagerstown, boasted over 700 vintage vehicles in their yard.

We, of course, hope this does not happen because this yard is a great source for vintage car and truck parts. When I paid George a visit … Read the rest of the story…
