Wastelands of Suburbia

A place where the cast-off ephemera of the last four generations comes to rest, and is discussed fondly....Like junk, or the injection-molded minutiae of history? Welcome home...Junkyards, yard sales, roadside oddities, thrift stores and more-your memories are deep inside the box, so keep shaking.

On the Road To Coatesville.

(A pretty rare variant of the Deuce and a Half with a bucket-most likely for commo work?)

On the way down to pick up the welder (about a 2 hr drive) I spotted these two army trucks. There has been more than one time In my life when I wanted one of these go anywhere, heavy as all Hell trucks to do some nasty job only a truck of this caliber could do. I dreamed of having one with a wrecker, pulling snotty rich kids out of ditches in their Mom's Range Rovers deep in the woods for cash.

(That's more like it. With this, all things are possible. You can barely see the commercial Holmes wheel lift attached to the back. Actually I think this one is a 5-ton and not a Deuce and a Half.)
