I just love driving the backroads, keeping two eyes on the roads, and my third eye or two scanning for the unusual and interesting.

It seems that I’m not the only one, Lewis Cobb Jr. spotted this starved figurehead on a late model Freightliner Cascadia?

Early 1950s Studebaker towtruck?

1953 Chevrolet Suburban?


This one was so nice I did a walk around.  Also, it was parked along a public street.

How about this 16-passenger monster truck?  Help me out here with the year and manufacturer?

And this made me think of the 1956 Invasion of the Body Snatchers, but

when I passed, it was only cabbages towed behind an empty pickup, heading for the kraut plant. Phelps even has a Sauerkraut Festival coming up in a few weeks.

I guess if I had a box truck in the five boros, I’d paint it up also.  Would this be fusion MesoAmerican East Asian?

Top photo thanks to Lewis, with more of his to come.  All others by WVD, as I gallivanted the countryside.  Here’s a truckadvertising a brew pub I saw but had no camera or designated driver!!
