Late 1950s GMC Farm truck with cat.
In your face Dodge farm truck. I think this one was still being used to haul grain and pigs and all kinds of stuff.

I found this 1954 Chevy on a trip to Hannibal, Mo my wife and I took a few years ago. My wife saw it first and suggested I stop and take a photo. Good call.
Here is an old White cement truck. I found this old beauty in Slater, Missouri.

This is a Chevy Viking dump truck. I found this old baby at the grain elevators in Mexico, Missouri. Looks like it has a number “6” on the driver’s side door. I wonder what this truck was being used for at the elevator.
This old International Cab Over reminds me of the Robot on ‘Lost in Space’. “Danger, danger, Will Robinson”!
This is one of the first paintings of these old Workhorse trucks that I have done. This old Ford was up around Glasgow Missouri (or at least the front half was).
Here is an old International I found close to Nelson, Missouri. A lot of these old trucks were used mostly in the Fall of the year to haul corn and beans out of the field and into town.
Here is an old GMC I found in a lot that used to be an establishment where I started out as a welder. That was back in the late ’70s at a place called Marshall Equipment Company. The place has kind of gone to seed since then.
On our way up to Detroit a few years ago, my wife and I found this old stake truck somewhere in Central Illinois. It was pretty cold out that day.
Here is an old mid ’50s Chevy. The hood looks like it might be a bit sprung. Looks like the trees grew up around the license plate.
Old fifties something Chevrolet pick up.
Here is an old REO Cold Comet my friend, Ron, and I found in Northern Saline County, Missouri. That big tree behind the roof was growing right through the bed.
Nose to Butt

Caught this over the road hauler out at Midway Truck Stop about 10 miles West of Columbia, MO on a rather brisk March morning.
Here is a Peterbilt I found just East of Columbia amidst a bunch of miscellaneous junk. Looks like a bell housing for a transmission just underneath the fuel tank.
This old Ford has been out of service for a long time.
“Move it on Over”. I think somebody wrote a song with that title.
Here is a late ’60s or possibly early ’70s International cab over. I found this big boy in Ashland, Missouri.
Nothing built like a Peterbilt.
Here is an old 1954 (I think) Chevy wrecker my wife and I found in Illinois on our way back from a visit to family in Detroit during the holidays a few years ago. Got out of the car, took the photo and hopped right back in. “Crank up the heater, Honey.”
Found this old bruiser in the back lot of a junkyard in Sweet Springs, Missouri. Not packin’ anybody anywhere anymore.
Here is an old 1950s Chevrolet dump truck. I found this old Work Horse on the road between Glasgow, MO and Booneville.
This old Chevy was at the grain mill in Glasgow, Missouri. At the time I took the photo for this watercolor I was working at Standard Havens as a welder making portable asphalt plants.
Buick and Lady Friend
This old boy had weeds growing where it used to have an engine. Imagine the stories this old gent might have to tell.
