Finding Your Next Vintage Truck… On Facebook?
Rich Truesdell


I’m sure that many of you are like me, you check specific category listings on eBay and Craigslist, looking for your next vintage truck with the hope of finding one with a reasonable price tag. But what’s reasonable to you? $2,000? $5,000? $10,000? I guess it all depends what economic strata you occupy. For me, trucks become more approachable when they cost less. I’m not quite sure how this truck, a 1965 Dodge D200, came to my attention, but garage … Read the rest of the story…

Stewart Criswell & Sons Inc—Pennsylvania’s vintage truck mother lode, Part 1
Joe Sharretts


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…

Packards & Studebakers Abound at Ted Covington Sales
Joe Sharretts


A few years back, I paid a visit to one of the most interesting salvage yards I’ve ever been to. Not only was the experience a lot of fun, but I also learned a great deal about a make that is rarely seen—the Packard. Of course here in Ottsville, Pennsylvania, Packards are a very common sight, because one man, Pete Grave, has been collecting them for the past 30 years. He has an extreme fondness for this make, because he … Read the rest of the story…

The Eventer

On a recent trip through southern Illinois, I passed through the small town of Tamaroa and noticed an old truck in the parking lot at Collins Truck Parts. It’s not surprising to find old trucks in that part of the state, and many of them are still hard at work every day. I was driving by at 55 mph and couldn’t figure out what make it was. Curiosity got the better of me, so I turned around and headed back … Read the rest of the story…

The 800 Or So Trucks of Williams
Joe Sharretts


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…
