The Eventer

On October 12, I enjoyed a trip to the 28th Annual Lions Club Fall Classic Car Show in Morris, Illinois. This is the largest nonprofit show in the state of Illinois, and it featured nearly 1,200 show cars, 200 cars for sale in the car corral, and 650 swap spaces that could easily take the entire day to peruse. My dad’s buddies had been setting up in the swap area for years, and we all enjoyed a great day that … Read the rest of the story…

Plus, I will throw … Read the rest of the story…

Focusing on Automotive Photography
Al Rogers

Al Rogers, the Lensman

My camera and lens work debuted in Vintage Truck magazine in the spring of 2014 with Chester Bradfield’s 1935 Studebaker Ace wrecker coloring the May/June 2014 issue with its bold red exterior. My work next appeared splashed across the front cover of the September/October 2014 issue with a brilliant white 1963 Chevrolet C-10 pickup, owned by Keith Bisson of Iowa, and a beautiful rustic old bridge in the background. Currently, the front cover of the November/December 2014 issue carries a … Read the rest of the story…

Back in August, after attending the events that comprise the Pebble Beach automotive week in Monterey, California, I was left with an important takeaway. While many would-be buyers focused on one-off Ferraris that went unsold at $23,000,000, there was a part of the collector car universe that was still affordable—classic pickup trucks. These trucks, to me anyway, fall into three distinct categories: prewar trucks that are restored to a high standard or are in original condition; postwar trucks in original … Read the rest of the story…

Prime Cuts from the Springfield Meet Market

Every Labor Day weekend, the Cars & Part Springfield (Ohio) Swap Meet and Car Show, held at the Clark County Fairgrounds, addresses everything automotive—old and new, big and small. The event always brings a number of used, and ofttimes abused, vintage trucks. Owners gave a number of different explanations about why they were letting their vehicles go, such as “it’s too much work” or “too much money,” or “my wife’s mad because I bought it,” and many others. Whatever the reason, here are six … Read the rest of the story…
