Dillsburg PA Farmers Fall Fair

Left Baltimore about 8am on Sat. 10/20 for Dillsburg PA and their Farmers Fair. As a part of the event the town puts on to show appreciation for the agricultural heritage and economic impact, the show includes a car/truck/tractor display on the main streets. There are a ton of food vendors, all with profits dedicated to a local non-profit¬†organization. Our weather was in the low 60’s with sun & clouds, very pleasant. In fact, pleasant enough we did the 1:45 drive home top down. But back to the show…there were trucks

Really neat old Ford truck.

Restored Chevy panel truck

Really neat pre-WW2 Mack truck with local artisan pickle company signage.

Who knew Packard made thousands of trucks for various governments for use in WW1? This is a perfect example.

It was nice to hear the comments from people who knew of the car but had never seen one.

 

 

 

 

 

 

and Triumphs

and a Morgan

and MG’s

plus some very unusual cars with special histories.

 

 

and of course, the tractors, 2 blocks of them, most in fantastic -read not used to plow- condition.

Blocks of tractors…red, green, orange, silver, blue.
