1939 Crosley prototype, one of 5 made

this is a game changer.... a dual Harley puller, wow.

before photography was easy to put on magazine covers, they hired really good artists

A mix of interesting things found on the AACA Library Tumblr

a Hudson with a lot of bumper guards

Always a good fun variety to look through at

VW cartoons

All from a VW catalog of cartoons found on

Very clever and simple parade float mounted to a Jeep and trailer, 1955

the rat bastards that made our cars rust out from salted roads

VW type 2 advertsiment from 1954 give the bus a slightly different look from the artists rendering

Found on and I wish the illustrators signature was easier to read, I'd love to see what other work he did painting vehicles

Truckers show up en masse to honor a Make A Wish from a little kid.

A convoy of big trucks took part in a funeral procession to pay tribute to a 3-year-old boy who recently died.

His situation was known even, to Monster Jam, who were going to have him as a guest for the  World Finals at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas due to the friends at the Make-A-Wish America foundation

ABC station KNXV-TV in Phoenix reports that more than 100 trucks - including fire engines, vintage military vehicles and semis - went through the city of Mesa Friday afternoon.

It was all for Elijah Steffen, who died hours after Make a Wish and Monster Jam learned of his wish. He was a fan of big trucks but never had the chance to attend a monster truck rally in Las Vegas, the disease had acted faster than people responding to his request even could.

The hour-long procession concluded at the Mountain View Funeral Home and Cemetery.

Stay aware and looking out for red light runners!
