Keep On Truckin with Dave Snyder --

It sure is nice to know that this blog is followed by good people like Dave Snyder, who recently sent me some nice e-mails and attached some photos of his builds. I am particularly fond of his latest, the Kenworth K-123. Also of interest are his builds of the "Hess Trucks".  Yes,  we do have these here Dave -- only not like those!!!

So thanks for the email.  Keep on building those great models -- they deserve a "special" post!!

Truck Spotting -- Greigsville, New York --- AUTOCAR COE and others

In the past few years, I can't count the number of times I have driven through this small town and missed this treasure trove of old trucks. This past week as Jan and I drove through, I spotted an old Loblaw's trailer that fortunately caught enough of my attention to make me turn around to take a picture. Am I glad I did!!!

As I parked, the first truck I spotted was this 1940's AUTOCAR COE staring at me.  I believe this truck was once part of the KEMP TRUCK COLLECTION and purchased at auction in 2009 --

Next to this sat a marvelous collection of old Mack's ---

An old International and background Ford ---

A 40's Chevrolet and old Divco

The Magnificent Mack AC

This beautiful Brockway 260

And I almost forgot ----- the Loblaw's Trailer
