Trucks that seem to have Dissappeared from the shows.

Recommended Posts

You know Matt, a buddy of mine and were sitting  around b.s.'n one night and started to wonder the same about  trucks we had seen maybe just one time at a show  and then they  fell right off of the face of  the  earth. Makes you wonder. ?????? Al

There are actually quite a few reasons for this

The most common reason is the owner is no longer able to show it for several reasons, lost interest, health, death, mechanical issues.

One big reason is the vehicle was sold and is no longer in the area.

The vehicle probably is in some private collection locally or someplace else

A lot of the older are not driven much for various reasons. I have found several people that have vehicles but no means to transport it and are unwilling to drive it any distance.

Joseph Equipment in NH has owned the yellow Zoppo B-81 for about 20 years.

Great topic. So many antiques and show rides just disappear. In a couple cases of some working show trucks I have seen them get totalled in wrecks. Had a Superliner near me with a small bunk and E9 that burned in a shop fire. I took this picture of this blue B model at Louisville about 20+ years ago and I haven't seen it since.
