French Cheese Produces Vintage Trucks

When we came into Tillamook Oregon we saw the Blue Heron Cheese store. Nancy said we had to come back in the morning. 
 Much to our surprise there were several vintage trucks along the parking lot. I am thinking Circa 1940  


Once the seat is worn out a well placed block of wood will do just fine. 
 I was able to look inside of this truck, top speed on the speedometer was 60 MPH. I am sure that was achieved going downhill with a tail wind.    
 What old truck would be complete without the all purpose coffee can
 
 This is a truck badge that you do not see everyday.
 Love the name of the company
Notice that all of these trucks have a place for a hand crank. Any car people out there would these have had electric starters with a hand crank as a back up?   
 The old days of old growth logging.
 This one is just ugly
 Notice the "red neck" door lock
3000 gallons of water is 25,000 lbs of just water 



More Oregon Coast photos at a later date. Thank you for visiting.
