Harden Vintage Truck and Tractor Display 2017

John took the 1989 Volvo N12 Intercooler, the 1973 Volvo F86 and the 1974 1418 Mercedes Benz up to the Harden Historic Truck and Tractor Club 4th annual Display Day on Sunday March 19, 2017. There were about 90 to 100 trucks - some historic,some modern, some working trucks plus tractors and cars. Here are most of the trucks which were on display and some historic ambulances. One feature of this show was that Volvo's out numbered Macks - there were 6 Volvos and only 2 Macks! In fact, even Mercedes Benz's outnumbered the Macks - there were four of them. If you attend many truck shows you would know that this is a very unusual event!
