Colonial Sand and Stone built some of their own Heavy, Heavy Haul trucks. Anybody have pics or discriptions?

Paul, I posted a shoot load a pictures of Colonial's older mixers on here some place? But so i've been told by the man himself Mr. Dave (Dave Pascerelli) the guy who had a hand in building that truck, they used a Diamond T or Federal cab and in the front they had there Italian fab. guys hand build the front rad. guard that said 'Colonial Special' across the front then they took the largest Horizontal mxer that Jager had to offer, cut it in half and added a section in the center to haul more concrete (I was told later on down the road Jager took them to court and they had to stop doing that). The rear tandems were wider then the front axle a lot wider! the first one had a small Cummins pony motor to run the mixer! I myself have been looking for this truck right after leaving the Astoria shop back in 1971!! I sometimes feel like Indiana Jones lookin for the lost Colonial Special! But any pictures I look at do not have that grill or the tandems, I just hope someone saved one! On one of my posts it says 'My first Mixer' and it's a picture of my 1962 International Emeryville Cab Over with a 11yd Rex horizontal mixer
