If you love classic cars or have a kid who dreams of being in one of those big fire trucks, the Town of Cary Touch A Truck event is the place for you! Each year, Touch A Truck Day draws dozens of classic car exhibits. Ranging from the 1920s to the modern classics, you are guaranteed to find your dream car lining the streets of downtown.
If you missed this year’s event, which was held in May, you are in luck! Planning has already begun for the 2018 Touch A Truck Day!
If you happen to be more like me, where the idea of getting behind the wheel of a fire truck or hitting the police siren sends you into your excited dance, Touch A Truck Day is a must! All the local departments had their trucks and equipment on hand for everyone (adults included) to experience the thrill of jumping aboard.
Ever seen a Ford Model T car completely built from nothing but pieces and driven away in just 15 minutes? Neither had I. It was incredible to watch this team put their car together and drive her down the road. Just a hunch, but I am pretty sure that cannot be done with today’s cars.
This was me every time I suited up for a call while volunteer on the Elon Fire Department. Something about jumping on that big red truck just brings out the kid in me.
