Colfax,N.C. Show

Recommended Posts

I have a Diamond T heavy hauler. Had to drive it out of the cabinet to take the picture, but it wasn't hard with all those pivot points. Hardest part was backing it back in there again.

Tom,i have the very same truck in my collection! only difference is mine is red,green and white..............................................Mark

This Corbitt was on the cover of the new Wheels of Time, along with a couple of good articles about Corbitt trucks.

Ive read about the Tall Boy's , havent read the whole Corbitt one yet.

They remind me of the 40's Pete's .

He used to bring the shorter tall boy to shows, but I haven't seen it in the last couple of years. Here's a picture of them when they used to have the Colfax show just up the road a mile or so at the Greensboro NAPA warehouse. I told Jo to stand by them so you could get an idea just how big they really are. She's not full size though, she's only 5' 1''.

Old Bill knows his Corbitt stuff too!

I've never seen such a truck. Seeing this one with Jo standing beside it. I would have thought the driver had to stand up to drive ,since it looks so tall. Just when I thought I had seen everything. It seems to me most of the shows today are Petes and KW's.

I believe the Corbitts belong to a Mr. Smith(?) from Durham. I had the chance to go through his yard this past summer. Quite the collection of rust including many Macks, IH Scouts, and Brockways as well as the Corbitts.

I could not even reach the handle to get into the Tall Boy. It must have been quite the ride back in the day.

I read thats why they chopped them down for a better ride. It was a great article. Yeah Don Smith owns them , says he's from Greensboro.

Do you have any shots of inside the cab? They should have shown some interior shots in WOT.

Quite "spartan" I'd say for certain.
