Karen O’Brien

The Eventer

Sure, school started and your summer vacation is just a memory, but truck show season is still in full swing and one of my favorites is fast approaching. Attending the 43rd Annual Hoosier Old Wheels Car Show and Swap Meet on the Sunday of Labor Day weekend (September 6, 2015) has become a favorite family tradition. The show is just one of the many festivities that will take place during the 49th Annual Marshall County Blueberry Festival. Hosted by the … Read the rest of the story…

Stewart Criswell & Sons Inc.—Pennsylvania’s vintage truck mother lode, Part 2
Joe Sharretts


In my blog post last month, I highlighted one of the first salvage yard I ever covered— Stewart Criswell & Sons Inc. Simply put, Criswell has every style, make, and model truck you can think of, from heavy-duty trucks to light pickups. I saw all brands on my visit, including some fairly uncommon makes like Studebaker, Diamond Rio, Corvair, GMC, and so on. I also noticed an overwhelming presence of 1950s delivery vans. There had to have been at least … Read the rest of the story…

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 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…
