This old International 2674 and this website have more in common than you might think. Both are well used and probably past their prime but they still get the job done despite many little things going wrong behind the scenes.
More than once someone has probably wanted to pull the plug on this old truck and move on to something easier to run and nicer to look at it. But they haven’t. Hopefully they don’t.
That’s enough waxing poetic about inanimate objects. I’m sure there will be more posts to come soon. In the mean time. Keep on trucking.
Once upon a time you could buy a truck from the “General” in nearly any size from pickup to class 8. Back when these two trucks were new that dream was fading fast. Does the crane truck appears to have a backup bell on the rear wheel or am just seeing what I want to?
According to my records I haven’t been to an Empire State Antique Truck Association show since 2016, possibly longer. This year the show moved to the Western New York Gas and Steam Association show grounds. In addition to the trucks and tractors on display there was all types of cool machines floating around the grounds. Take a look. Video to follow.
