Re: Trucks Are Beautiful

Sure is. Looks like the guy that can do the job.

I can't have a collection of real heavy trucks, so this is the best I could do

Re: Trucks Are Beautiful

Thanks. These stay up on a shelf that goes around my laundry room. I took them all down and did a truck wash on all of them. That red cab flatbed (aluminum) with stanchions carries a nice hack of lumber held down by two chains. I had the boards laid out drying somewhere else. I collected these years ago. I had a pretty big collection. I still have some others not shown, but sold off a bunch during the recession

Re: Trucks Are Beautiful

Nice collection Tim. Brings back lots of memories. During the winter, I would put chains on the rear duals of my trucks (actually elastic bands, but it looked pretty cool).

Re: Trucks Are Beautiful

I think that's the attraction with them, nostalgia. The first one I bought as an adult was a red '56 Ford pickup when they had antiques set up for sale in a mall when I was on shopping duty with my wife. I just liked it and it wasn't a whole lot of money. I always liked the 1t pickups. Then I started looking for them and when I'd find one it would bring back the memories. The gum band chains idea sounds cool. I'd get realistic with them like that, too. I got serious collecting when my son was past playing with toys. then came my younger son. So I'd get ones for him to play with and the rest were treated special. He had a monster sandbox.

Here is me one Christmas a few years ago:
