    30th Annual ATCA Truck Show in Macungie PA, my personal pictures​

    Well to start, the pouring rain discouraged many from showing there rigs off. The ATCA usually has nearly 500 trucks on display a year. This year with the rain there was substantially less. If the weather was nice, there would have been a lot of hoods open and people out talking. The rain really put alot of people down. As you can imagine, many have invested thousands if not tens of thousands of dollars into there rigs for them to get soaked in the rain. Many just left there cars and trucks in the box trailers. Out of about 350 trucks, only 6 had open hoods exposing the engines.

    The show was still great though, despite the rain and tons of mud.


    At the end of the show, the three big military vehicles showed off pulling basically 90% of the trucks out of the mud. The Kaiser Reo M103, Walter, and the 1955 Oshkosh all showed brute force and what gearing and huge wheels can do. It was quite a show to see big rigs spinning all of their rear wheels in the mud trying to get out. Even my dads F250 nearly got stuck in the mud. Only it was worse for the big rigs which have such a tremendous mass. Many were sunk at least 6 inches into the dirt.

    No offense but you and Oshkosh represent opposite ends of the spectrum





    Syndrome, I have more images of the Oshkosh. I have none of the interior. The owner said that it was too much of a hassel to open the hood. It was pouring rain, and I dont blame him.
    I wish I video'd him driving in. It was awfully loud and just awesome.

    As an addition,
    here are two images of two Waukesha 1950's dragline engines.
    One is a 6 cylinder, the other is a rare 5 cylinder. Both are gasoline, but they make a might roar.

    Ive got a video of the 6 cylinder running
