  1. I got to know him a little bit ! he was a neat ole timer and if you stopped and had time he’d talk old trucks for hours they were all part of his company he said he built a lot of Rt 22 in that area and something to do with the state and money he just parked it all but nothing was for sale the few times I stopped . But a few did leave the past few years. Couple brockways and a steel dash R model with a v-8 Detroit in it it’s on you tube loading and leaving on a trailer he had lots of stuff planes too !
