That's just the Truck stuff I snapped, and I didn't get ALL the trucks.
Find the non-truck shots from that day here....

We’ve said it before, but it bears repeating; the GS handles in ways a two-story building was never meant to.

Taking collections for Faye Butler Training please spare some change.

Remember red and yellow make orange.so to think orange is better means you have to use two steps to get there.

looks like an s10 frame to me with a small block throw in. pretty common thing to do to these trucks, since s10's used the same front clip as old monte carlo's, are super easy to toss a v8 into, and are already a full frame truck chassis.

just cut off old body mounts, weld up mounts to match the holes on the body and drop her down. It's very easy to do wtih the early 50's chevy pickups, and probably not too hard with these older beasts too.

Sorry, I didn't have enough time to get into detail on all of the posted rides. I could only stay about 4 hours that day. I can say for sure that I haven't seen that one around before. I would have remembered it by the "Kennett, MO" on the doors if nothing else.

I get to a LOT of shows 'round here, so if I run across it again I'll get more info & post up.

Anyone know if rigs used as personal vehicles / collectors' vehicles are held to the same standard as the ones being commercially used DOT-inspected CDL trucks?

Some seem worth preserving as much as pickup trucks

The upper lot was a little weak this year . I was hoping to see more european cars like in years past . Seems we missed some good stuff on the lower lot.

As long as it's NOT used for "commerce", it's just a big honkin' private vehicle. Not even a special license required, if not used commercially.
Some info available by searching on The Truckers Report forums. I don't post there but I have been lurking for years.
http://www.thetruckersreport.com/truckingindustryforum/
But to double-check, contact your state's DOT office.

Now that you mention it, I think you're right. But I do think the Quality, if not the Quantity was very good.
For your euro-fix, don't miss the Shriners Hospital European Car Show June 3rd. HIGH quality, medium to small Quantity.

For any city, I go by the "Craigslist Economic Indicator".
How many "toys" (especially the unfinished projects) are for sale and what are the asking prices?

And according to the CEI...... STL is hurtin'! LOTS of Neat Stuff at Good-to-Fire-Sale prices. None of which I can afford right now.

Hope your family here, and you, are getting by.
Thanks for the Good Wishes!
Otis
