There's a member on Hank's that restored 2 of Lane's trucks. They are in this video beginning at 2:35. He has other videos taken from inside the cab.

Cliff Lane hand-made all those wooden signs on the nose of his trailers,i can't remember exactly what they meant,but really nice work!............................Mark

I have a picture, of a picture of a New Penn U model. I see New Penn Visions running around here pretty often. Sometimes I see them behind my house at the building supply place.

Any of those guys come from Philly? if so maybe they remember this truck and driver,this guy was legendary!................................Mark

Spiegel Trucking in Harrison NJ Had 10 of those that he bought from APA in No Bergen, I have driven those many many times, as I worked part time for Izzy when things were slow at Colonial S&S. I think they were 230 Cummins with 10 speed Fullers, but the think about those trucks, thay had the biggest rears I have ever seen in a single axle!! We would go over to Hartz Mountain in Harrison and load dog chains (heavy) 22 tons and bring them down to south central NJ I can't think of the name?? I think it was Pennsauken?They were good trucks as long as you wern't bobtailin!!

I don't know? But last time I went by (about a week ago) I see that pile of recycle was about 1/3 of what it used to be! I'll check on the AVL next time I go by
