Truck honors Titan Machinery, goat project
PLYMOUTH CO. — For the 21st year, a collectible truck will recognize activities and scenes that make up the Plymouth County Fair.
The 2020 edition of the Plymouth County Fair Truck salutes Titan Machinery Employees and the 2019 Plymouth County Goat Project members.
The No. 1 and No. 2 trucks of 150 will be sold at the fair auction, which is online this year through Brock Auction at www.brockauction.com. It is live now through Sunday, Aug. 2.

The other side of the trailer pictures members who participated in the 2019 Goat Project.
The 2020 truck is the 21st in a series of model trucks designed and produced by Albert Schulz, of the Le Mars Toy Store.
Each year Schulz takes the photos and coordinates the design and production of the truck.
The collectible truck is a 1/64 scale die-cast Peterbilt 379 tractor and decorated trailer. This year’s truck was produced by SpecCast Co.
The tractor is red with the year 2020, Plymouth County Fair and Le Mars, Iowa printed.
The trailer is black and red, with the words “79th Annual Plymouth County Fair” and “July 29 - August 2, 2020” on it.
The limited edition trucks are numbered from 1 to 150 and labeled as 21st in a series on the rear of the trailer.
All proceeds from the sale of the two trucks on the online fair auction will go to the Plymouth County Fair.
Schulz said a very limited number of trucks are still available to purchase. Cost is $75. Individuals who have ordered and paid for their truck may pick it up at the Le Mars Toy Store during regular store hours, which are 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Mondays-Fridays, and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturdays.
They will not have a trailer set up at the Plymouth County Fairgrounds this year, so purchasers should stop by the Le Mars Toy Store.
Anyone interested in purchasing a truck should contact Schulz at 546-4305.
“Our trucks are sold out every year,” Schulz said. “These trucks are really a history of the fair,” Schulz said.
