Antique Truck Show on Minter\'s Farm

2014-06-12

By

 For anyone looking for a fun and inexpensive way to treat their dad on Father’s Day weekend, there’s the fifth annual Inman Antique Truck show on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Minter’s Farm on Hill’s Bridge Road in the south Fayette County community of Inman.

 Like the Inman Farm Heritage Days held every third weekend in September, the Father’s Day weekend truck show is free to both visitor and exhibitors.

 And both events are intended to focus on the machinery that played a role in the farm and community life of days gone by.

 “Today, trucks have become as popular – or more so – than cars for the motoring public,” said Rick Minter, one of the organizers of the show. “But back in the day, they were real workhorses for farms and businesses. And we’re proud to have some of those trucks on display each year.”

 Among the truck featured this year, and the one appearing on the dash plaques given to exhibitors is the beautifully restored F700 Ford car hauler that spent its working life hauling cars for Jerry Coleman in his auto parts business in north Fayette County.

 Antique cars also are a big part of Saturday’s event as the Griffin Piedmont Region of the Antique Automobile Club of America is coming to Inman to hold its 42nd annual show.

 And there will be barbecue by David Adams of Fayetteville and his Big Pig BBQ Catering.

 For more information on Saturday’s show, visit Mintersfarm.com, look for Minter’s Farm on Facebook or call 770-461-2840.
