Thanks guys. Always fun to find new pictures, would be even better if more people could contribute to these. I tend to focus on the vintage shots but there are plenty of modern pictures of cool commercial vehicles that would be right at home on here.

Some more from the Vintage Pictures thread over on the HAMB, originally posted by 29bowtie.

This gives you some good reference as to the size of a Model A pickup as compared to other trucks of the era...



These are cool to show both a Model A car and truck in the same shot.





Thanks
-Tim

C'mon Steve, you don't remember back on Page 8 of this thread some three hundreds posts ago me posting pics of my truck?

Yup, late '31 Steeltop sits in my garage, I call him Hewson. He'll be ten years old June 27th.

Hey look, this is the 500th post on this thread!

Here's a neat shot of a Model A Phone Truck out on the street



And a AA truck...



Above originally posted by swi66 over on the Vintage pictures thread of the H.A.M.B.

How about some roadster pickups?

My dad turned 100 on 6/13/13. This is a picture of him at 25 when he delivered groceries for Andrew Ghores in Hibbing, Minnesota.
