Mid-America Trucking Show 2018 in Photos, Day 3

Mid-America 2018 wrapped up on Saturday under grey rainy skies -- usually a good omen for trade shows. Outside exhibitors weren't happy, but the mood inside was good.

Mid-America Trucking Show 2018 in Photos, Day 1

Thursday morning dawned clear, but at 7:30, crews were still clearing snowbanks and salting the icy parking lot. Photo by Jim Park.

Attendance seemed good for the first day of the Mid-America Trucking Show 2018, which got underway at 10 a.m. March 22. Absent this year were several of the truck and trailer makers and a few of the major Tier 1 suppliers, but showgoers didn't seem to mind too much, at least not that we heard.

The bevy of beauties at this year's Paul K. Young Truck Beauty contest at the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, Kentucky, seemed a little thinner. There were fewer of the highly customized "Mafia" style trucks, and the winners list showed a preference for more traditional entries. There were some nicely done classics and some brand new trucks as well. Here's a sample of what we saw out behind the stables this year. All photos by Jim Park.
