Happy (belated) birthday Antique Truck Club of America! This past January 21st the ATCA celebrated its 50th anniversary. Below is the official press release.
The Antique Truck Club of America will be celebrating its 50th Anniversary in 2021. The Boyertown, PA based ATCA is dedicated to the preservation, restoration, and operation of antique trucks. From humble beginnings in the metropolitan New York area in 1971, the club has grown into a national organization with members around the world. ATCA has thirty chapters across the United States and Canada. These local chapters bring members together to share stories, advice, parts resources and to generally enjoy the company of others with a common interest in old trucks.
ATCA strives to maintain a family friendly, low cost, grass roots operation, welcoming anyone with an interest in antique trucks. While ownership of an antique truck is not a requirement for membership, virtually any age, size, make, or body style can be found among the vehicles displayed at an ATCA show. Regardless of whether a truck is beautifully restored, just rescued from a farmers field, or in any condition in between, it is welcome.
ATCA is known worldwide for its annual National Meet held in Macungie, PA. This event is often referred to as the “greatest antique truck show on earth“. Every year in June thousands of truck fans from around the globe gather to admire the hundreds of antique trucks on display. The large truck related flea market and “Family Reunion” picnic are also popular parts of the show experience. Over a thousand trucks are anticipated to be on site for the 2021 show celebrating the Club’s 50th anniversary.
The show is open to the public, and admission is free.
The Antique Truck Club of America would like to welcome one and all to join us at our National Meet to celebrate our Golden Anniversary June 18th and 19th 2021.
I know that we live in the age of skeptics and some of you out there might be wondering if the show in Macungie is really all it’s cracked up to be. Proof is in the pudding. Below, every video I have ever shot at Macungie.
