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…

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…

Struck By Lightning: Ford’s Muscle Truck
Al Rogers

Al Rogers, the Lensman

As I make my way along U.S. and Canadian roadways, stopping at locations to pull the trigger on my Nikons for Vintage Truck, I’m usually asked about my past, the first question often being, “Do you own a classic car or truck?” For nearly 30 years, I worked as a manager at one of the manufacturing assembly plants in Michigan. During my career with the company, I had grown fond of many products the Ford Motor Company produced. My years … Read the rest of the story…

Ford F-Series LeMay ACM

An exhibit called “Ford F-Series: The Truck That Grew Up With America” opened on January 10, 2015, at LeMay—America’s Car Museum (ACM), in Tacoma, Washington, and the size of the crowd predicted its popularity. As the largest automotive museum in North America, the city’s four-level, 165,000-square-foot gem is always a choice destination, but the level of attendance that day proved how much Americans love the trucks that have dominated the marketplace for nearly four decades.
