Re: GM Semis

Great trucks. That Chevy B model is great. That spot just might be the most popular spot for photo shots of trucks.

Re: GM Semis

I think it's an 80 and I agree 64. That spot, Lebec, CA is popular but not even close to most popular. Ron Adams shot (and is still shooting) photos at his spot along I-78 in PA for more than 50 years. Well into the hundreds of thousands of photos.

I live not too far from 78 in PA. Which photos might you be referring to?

Re: GM Semis

Here's one of Ron's GMCs. He has written many books and has hsd photos in magazines. He lives in Lenhartsville and has been collecting truck photos and other stuff for 65 years. I can say he has more photos and more original truck photos than anyone in the WORLD.

S.E. Rykoff. Used to see those mint green trucks all over Southern California. Rykoff was a big restaurant supply outfit, eventually became part of U.S. Foods. The had a lot of GMC's, and many were Toro-Flow powered. Rykoff had their own in-house fleet maintenance department and they were known to be very fastidious. That fact coupled with the delivery type service in which Rykoff used their trucks explains why they were one of the few fleets that actually liked Toro-Flows!

Now if you could find a shot of a Von's Grocery propane fueled HM-7500............

Would like to see a shot of that Side Emblem, but I would say that it is an 80.

Looks like a '64 Model anyway.
I think Chevy called those an 'E-80'.

Re: GM Semis

Yes, 1964 diesel was an E80. Lighter, gas models were L-models, L60, etc.

Yeah, I wasn't sure about it, that's why I put "B" in parenthesis, lol.

It would have been nice if both Chevy and GMC always used the same Letter designation.

I guess I've been looking at his pictures a long time but never paid any mind to them being in the same place. He surely has taken more and for the longest time. That spot on the Grapevine is the most familiar one for me, maybe because I've made that drive a lot, good memories when I see it. I said just might be since I can't speak for all.

Pretty sure this has been shown but I thought I'd toss it in with the rest as a nice example.

Re: GM Semis

Interesting picture of a truck obviously in the development stage. Notice the date on the bottom of the picture (9-22-64). Goes to show how early they started on them. Also notice the small Chevy script in the Grille, which they never ended up using. It's the same script that they used on the Grille of the '65 Impala. They also changed the Grille style a little. It is a cool picture.

Such a nice rig. That prototype is neat. I wonder if it's clay.

I figured you'd pick up on that one. I think you are right about them being built down there.

I for one, really appreciate all his photos taken back in the day, especially in color. And others as well, who took the time to capture history before it disappears. If you really think about it, there really is a small window in time that these trucks were everyday sights on the road. I wish here was someone out there that took period photos of pickups as well.

I think anyone who likes looking at old trucks appreciates the pictures he took, even if they don't know who is is from the internet.

Not to mention all the money and time to develop all of those photos

Re: GM Semis

Yep, digital cameras brought out a lot more photos in the world. I took more pictures on film than anyone I knew. Talking in general. Yet, I have relatively few photos of my trucks and many I never took any pictures at all. I also have pictures that didn't come out well or deteriorated from storage or got damaged. I remember people asking me why I took pictures of my vehicle. It was in no way a common thing. The expense and effort inhibited it's use by many. That's why insta-matics were a success.

The only two pictures I took of my '61 Champ I restored in the late-70s. And I remember my girlfriend asking me why I was taking them that day

Nice Studebaker. You don't see many around anymore.

Also a pretty nice Heavy Medium under it.
