International Harvester Ambulances: An Unfinished Story

One of the great things about producing this blog is that I get to write about nearly anything I want so long as it has some connection to vintage trucks. Those of you who follow me here know I am attracted to the strange, unusual, and in most instances, rare. Some blogs generate a large number of comments, such as the one on the Canadian Mercury trucks, and others don’t. It’s really a toss-up. When I sit down at my … Read the rest of the story…

Joe Sharretts

junkyard

Way back in 2001, when I first got the idea in my head to write about salvage yards, Stewart Criswell & Sons Inc. was the very first yard I ever covered. It was my local yard, where I pulled what I needed to put my 1965 Chevelle back together. Nothing has changed since then, except for maybe a few more parts are missing off of the 2,500 or so vintage vehicles in the yard. The yard is still run by … Read the rest of the story…

The Fabulous Ford Broncos of 1966-1977

Of the 50-plus car shows and Concours d’Elegances I attend every year, one of my favorites is the Fabulous Fords Forever! Car Show (FFF), held each April at Knott’s Berry Farm in Buena Park, California. While it seems that more than half of the 1,700-plus cars on display are Mustangs of every vintage, there are still enough other Ford, Lincoln, and Mercury vehicles to satisfy Ford enthusiasts. My favorites are the rare models (especially the classic Lincoln Continentals), vintage Ford … Read the rest of the story…

The 800 Or So Trucks of Williams
Joe Sharretts

junkyard

This month, I highlight a New Jersey salvage yard that, to date for me, has been the mother lode of salvaged vintage trucks. Most yards that I visit have a handful of trucks mixed in with the vintage cars, but this yard is the exact opposite. Williams Auto & Truck Parts of Pitts Grove, New Jersey, has the vintage cars beat four to one. In all honesty, I originally paid a visit to see the 200 or so vintage cars, which … Read the rest of the story…
