The Historical Construction Equipment Association will hold their annual convention in Brownsville, Pennsylvania August 13-15, 1999. This convention brings together antique construction equipment from the United States and Canada. Steam and gas shovels, crawler tractors, bulldozers, graders, trucks and many other relics of the past will be in operation at the convention. The show is held in conjunction with the National Pike Steam, Gas and Horse Association's annual summer show, which features many exhibits of farming equipment from past eras.
Highlights of the 1999 HCEA convention include an Erie B steam shovel, a gathering of Caterpillar Sixty tractors, and a flea market area featuring parts for old equipment. Model and toy construction equipment will be displayed by members of the HCEA. A buffet dinner will be held on site Saturday night. A large gathering of equipment is expected and the crowd nears 5,000 attendees.
There will be live entertainment, models and displays. All Caterpillar Sixty Tractors and owners are especially invited. For further information, call 724-356-2307.
