Every old truck has its own personality, like "Stanley" here, a 1946 Studebaker M-16 flatbed, owned by Al Downs of Tacoma, WA.* Stanley will be in good company at the 19th annual Antique Truck Show hosted by the Northwest Chapter of the American Truck Historical Society on Saturday, Aug. 9, 2014, in Olympia, WA. You will find this handsome guy among many, many other vintage trucks waiting to meet you face to face. You don't get to hang out with this cool crowd just any old time, so why not plan to go?

This event takes place at Kiperts Korner Feed, 8439 Old Hwy. 99 S., Olympia, WA 98501 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Admission and parking are both FREE and there will be food vendors on site. 

The ATHS Northwest Chapter website says the organization is "dedicated to preserving the dynamic history of trucks, the trucking industry, and its pioneers in the Pacific Northwest." In addition to antique and vintage trucks of all kinds, you can take a look at interesting static displays having to do with highway safety. 

These truck shows are so much fun for the whole family. You'll learn plenty about the history of trucks and see beautiful examples. I'm even providing a map, which you can access by clicking HERE, so no excuses. Stanley's expecting you. Ah... just look at that face...
