    I love the old tanks out there. Post your old truck pics here please and thank you. Here is my old power wagon and one I found online. Wish I could find an old sno-commander like that one.

    Mark, your truck looks AWFUL familiar, are you on FSC or GMFS?

    and here's a couple pics of my trucks...
    my 77 in her former glory...
    [​IMG]
    after 30 years as a plow truck, she's retired, and waiting on restoration. plans are currently EFi and an overdrive trans. may beef it up and use it as a tow pig. the only thing left on it from the plow setup is the lift frame, as its welded to the frame. after resto, it will never see snow again, unless i absolutely have to drive it. inherited it from my grandfather when he passed away in 03. he always talked about us restoring an old truck into a nice driver for him, but we never got to it. when i got the truck, i knew what i have to do with it, i have to build that truck. its the one truck i will never part with until someone pries the keys from my cold, dead hand.

    and my 80, the replacement for the 77...

    its getting an injected motor in the spring, along with a hydraulic clutch setup from an 87. we'll see how she does, and this may end up being the tow pig after some brake upgrades (discs in the rear, i HATE drum brakes!)

    I post ***** it up on FSC all the time. I'm registered on GMFS but go over there about once a year.

    Hey guys Ive been lucking around for about a year now. Love the site, but when I saw "Old Plow Trucks" I thought you meant OLD like mine, not next to new 70's and 80' stuff.:confused:
    Here is the OLD rig I plow with http://s242.photobucket.com/albums/ff113/willyswagon-2007/?action=view&current=ibc117.jpg
    Just rebuilt the cab over and gave it a fresh coat of paint http://s242.photobucket.com/albums/ff113/willyswagon-2007/?action=view&current=ibc108.jpg
    I'm building a new box for it this winter. It will look like this again come spring http://s242.photobucket.com/albums/ff113/willyswagon-2007/?action=view&current=ibc006.jpg

    It has an original western electric - hydrolic plow set up. The ivory handle on the right control the blade. http://s242.photobucket.com/albums/ff113/willyswagon-2007/?action=view&current=ibc120.jpg
    It's a simple set up but has past the test of time. 52 years old and still going!!!!:nod:

    Not a truck, but its my old plow vehicle. 87 Jeep Cherekee with 257,000 miles on it... Best $250 investment Ive ever made. I use it to run a 5 hour route of small business's and residential driveways.
    Cant beat it for small tight spots. Throw the wings on and its 8' wide. I help do Khols, Red Lobster, Payless, Home Depot and a couple others when my route is done.

    I think its even better than the 87 Blazer it replaced that was wore out. Paid $600 for it. Used it for 3 years.

    The Blazer was used to plow, believe it or not. Marion High School for years. 2 BIG lots. 5 to 6 hours of plowing for that one lot, Then 2 other small business's and a residential route.

    Well it looks like the old dog will be sitting for a bit. Warm weather on the way.:cry: I was hoping for snow every day, but no such luck. Heres the last snowfall. More of a wind event.20 cm and huge winds. Gusts hit 186 km/h here. Most of the snow blew off the island.
