Amish buggy..


Quite often I will be on a run and go through the Amish community. There are stores just outside of Rochester that sell their products. Today I saw this buggy at one of their outlets.

Old Ford ‘Fire’_Truck


I’m always on the move as head of the Rochester C_J_L bureau. And I cover a lot of miles. Yesterday I came across yet “another” old fire truck. This one isn’t anywhere near as old as last weeks that I posted. This is an F_750 if I remember correctly. But I venture to say it’s 30 to 40 years old. I didn’t get chance to get the year.

Hitching a Ride


A little earlier this morning, I scooted to the store for some breakfast preparations. This guy decided to ride along. I invited him to stay, but he declined.

Antique ‘Fire Truck’…


While at work yesterday, I needed some tools. So I went into 1 of our shops that I hadn’t yet been into. I discovered this old treasure. She’s either a 1941 or 1946. One of my bosses toys.

Old Cars, History!


Yes folks, here’s an old Ford. I believe it’s a 1956. A pure classic, a fine piece of machinery!

Trucking Back in the Days!


And yes folks, while at another repair shop getting things done on my truck, I walked around while waiting and noticed this old relic. She’s a 1956 Ford.

Repair Shop Gardening!


Yes folks, yesterday I took my truck into the shop for the front end to be aligned. While there, I walked around and noticed this unique design. An old diesel engine block used for flowers. I was amused by this and wanted to share it.

Life After Death!


Yes folks, it is true, when 1 thing dies off, sometimes another is born. The other day at work I was moving some equipment around and came across this. It seems that Mr. and Mrs. Bird thought the radiator of this old truck RIP was an ideal home to start their new family.

Aeronautical History!


This past week I was on a run in Geneseo, New York. They have an old plane mini museum so to speak. They have plane rides with weekend aviationists, mini tours,etc.. While there I noticed this relic. It’s not the greatest picture due to the distance I shot it at, not the greatest lighting either. But I wanted to share it.

New style tractor!


When you are on the road, you see all types of things. This must be a new type, model of tractor. Where’s the engine? LOL
