Hundreds of antique trucks and thousands of trucking enthusiasts will gather in Yakima, Wash., for the American Truck Historical Society's 2013 National Convention and Antique Truck Show held May 30 through June 1, 2013.
Trucks of nearly every vintage and make will be represented at the show, including the high spoke-wheel trucks of the early 1900s to the big 18-wheeler rigs seen today on America's highways. To be considered an antique, a truck must be at least 25 years old.
In addition to the Antique Truck Show, the convention will include a wide variety of vendors and a speaker's program with topics on Alcoa Aluminum Truck Wheels, Logging Industry and Trucking, History of Sterling Trucks, and Yakima Valley Trucking History.
