The first Old Time Truck Show, sponsored by Old Time Trucks magazine, will bring classic trucks from across the country together on Labor Day weekend. The show — which is set for Friday and Saturday, Sept. 1 and 2, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Warren County Fairgrounds in Lebanon, Ohio — will be a free event where families can see the workhorses of the past.

Included in the display will be a 1919 Oldsmobile and a 1963 Marmon, both owned by Don Chew of Brighton, Colo.; Chew will be a featured speaker on Friday and Saturday. A restored 1929 White Model 15 owned by Jim Conrad of Marshallville, Ohio, also will be on display, along with many other vehicles from the 1910s to the ’80s.

Food vendors, storytelling presentations and a truck parade on Saturday at 2 p.m. will be among the other attractions. Tri-State Sterling Trucks and Worldwide Equipment, two of the show sponsors from Cincinnati, will display various new ’07 truck models, and other trucking items will be for sale.

Old Time Trucks is a bimonthly magazine about antique trucks and the history of trucking. For details about the show, go to www.oldtimetrucks.org.
