ATHS PU 21965 Dodge A-100 owned by Tom Spencer of Owego, NY. This is the same style as the famous Dodge wheel stander, Little Red Wagon.

ATHS PU 4A classic 1984 Chevrolet El Camino owned by Ron Heckman of Easton, Pa.

ATHS PU 5The owner of this beautiful 1949 Mercury M-49 from Smithfield, Ontario, wanted to remain anonymous.

ATHS PU 6A true work truck back in the day. 1936 International C-5 owned by Ken Rabenesk of Louisville, Ky.

ATHS PU 7Maybe not a classic for pickup guys, but this 1979 Kenworth W-900, owned by Ed Crock of Caldwell, Ohio, is still a classic work truck.

ATHS PU 8The predecessor to the F-150: 1961 Ford F-100 owned by Paul Dippold of Alden, NY.

ATHS PU 9This pickup would look good sitting in front of any company's office: 1940 Plymouth 105 owned by Allen Prome of Grand Island, NY.

ATHS PU 10If we only had these available today: 1973 International Scout owned by Phillip Davis of Ford City, Pa.

ATHS PU 11This work truck is a long way from home: 1982 Mack RW owned by Dick Beckett of Exeter, Tazmania, Australia.

ATHS PU 12This classic pickup is as clean and straight as they come: 1942 Chevrolet owned by Brian Kassa of Pine Brook, NJ.

Everyone loves old iron. Classic trucks, be they big rigs or pickups, stock or custom, grab the attention of young and old alike.

That’s exactly what the more than 1,200 vehicles on display at this year’s annual American Truck Historical Society (ATHS) convention and truck show did — elicit ooohs and ahhhs from everyone who attended the late May event held at the York Expo Center in York, Pa.
