When the Historical Construction Equipment Association holds its annual Old Equipment Exposition, it's like taking a step back in time. Dozens of vintage machines were on display at the last expo, many of which had been restored to working order. The machines are brought in from all over the country by proud HCEA members who have spent hundreds of hours putting the old equipment back in shape. The expositions are open to the public, and attendance last year was estimated at 30,000 to 35,000 people.
This year's HCEA convention and exposition will be held Sept. 5 through 7 at the HCEA headquarters and museum in Bowling Green, Ohio. In the meantime, you can learn more about the HCEA by visiting its website at www.hcea.net.
