Anyone into old trucks? (my avatar is a B61 Mack)

ATHS publishes a great magazine, Wheels of Time. My Tractor Supply has them or you can join the Society.

I love the old pickups. Never see old 18 wheelers like that. Very cool stuff.
By chance do you have an old truck Jim?

No old stuff now. I just like trucks and have fond memories of time spent with them.

I first drove a @1950 GMC pickup, the one with the extra rectangular windows in the back corner of the cab.
I sat in my Grandad's lap and helped him hold the steering wheel

Later I learned to drive a stick in a 1959 GMC pickup. First real truck was a GMC bobtail cattle truck, I think it was a 60 or 61.

I spent 10 years on a volunteer fire dept. 1942 American La France, 1944 Dodge heavy duty wrecker (WWII surplus), 1954 GMC Howe pumper, 1958 Mack pumper, lots of other old stuff. Wasn't that old in 1966.

This is an hour from my house. In a second building is an amazing early tractor collection too.

I really enjoy their magazine. My wife accuses me of living in the past and I guess I do.

Have you seen this site? I found it while browsing for "Movin' On" truck info. The last known "Movin' On" truck is pictured on this web site. It's repowerd and stretched, but is one of the TV show trucks. Guy that owns it has a BJ and the Bear truck too.

Thanks for the link!

I found it a while back but didn't bookmark it. Then I couldn't find it again

Hee are some pics of the trucks. This guy owns both original BJ and the Bear Movin On trucks. They work them though, not just show trucks.
