Nice pics Tom!  One of these years I'll make it over there?

First time for me, and I think Doug Maney was right when he called it "the greatest antique truck show on earth!"

This was the big attraction in both of those GMCs-

His son passed away a couple years ago. The owner is still alive. My buddy did an appraisal for insurance purposes on the B81 last year for them. I doubt the trucks would go up for sale any time soon.

Tom, It was nice to meet you and thanks for the great pictures. They helped to put some order to all of the nice truck images swirling around in my mind.

Good pictures OD especially the snapper and the two " jimmies" I still prefer the original bumpers but the big chrome ones look good too! Many years ago my wife and her sister brought home a big snapper in the car trunk knowing my affinity for reptiles! They didn't know they could have lost a finger! Just picked it up and threw it in the trunk! I don't recall that dinosaur exhibit on 522, is it fairly new?

Naw, those dinosaurs have been there as long as I can remember. I'm with you with the GMCs, I told Vinny when we were talking that the big tall sleeper on that red cannonball kind of ruined it for me because it wasn't original, but to each his own. I liked the blue Tackaberry one better, it looked like it would look new on a dealer's lot, and the old green one- that one looked like it would look when it was still working.
