    TRUCK EXPO - Major Disappointment

    Guys, don't waste your time or fuel

    Drove an hour and a half to Hartford this morning, to attend the Northeast Truck Expo. Boy was I disappointed.

    There weren't half as many vendors there this year as there were last year. There were even less trucks than last year:(

    Thank goodness it was free admission and free parking or I would have been major:realmad:

    Heard its a different promoter this year, but that doesn't sound right, it was Conex last year and supposedly Conex this year.


    They should have left it on a weekend like last year.


    Boy am I :realmad: :angry:

    Sad part is that these are the same people who are running the N.E Trade Show for Snow and Ice November 18th and 19th up in Marlborough Mass. I was gonna go, but I second guessing myself right now. Heck I can't even get their website to open so I can email them a complaint.

    Yeah i will agree with curtis i drove over a hour to go and the only cool thing there was the V-16 diesel and a hummer with a plow on it and i talked to the amsoil guy and he wants me to be a distibuter LOL I have to think about that. But i dont think it was worth it. I spent most of my time at the bar they had there LOL

    H2 for plowing

    It would be comfortable and VERY stylish especially with 24 inch chrome spinners . Visibility would be limited. I took an H2 on a 24 hour test drive. It was pretty cool

    Maybe it wasnt the best show ever, but considering the weather, not a terrible afternoon
