    Would anyone here have any pics to share of old vintage equiptment they use or used in the past or maybe pictures of equiptment there family used in the past. Any pics of old snow plow trucks, loaders, dump trucks or anything used for snow removal or construction etc. I'm on a kick latly looking at old equiptment and would love to see if anyone has any they run currently, this could also be a pic thread for this kind of equiptment, Thanks. And any stories they can share about what it was like to use the equiptment from the past.

    In the mid-to-late 1960's and sometime into the 1970's or maybe beyond, there was a gas station on US 1-A in Rowley MA that had a Jeep FC (Forward Control, made by Willys and then by Kaiser Jeep rom 1956-65) with a blower mounted on the front. I never saw it in action, but it was usually parked in the lot alongside the building. I checked Google Street View and couldn't see it, so maybe they retired it or moved it indoors.
    It looked something like this rig: <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KUvaHvSGoXY>

    I don't recall what the back body was like on the one in Rowley, but it was about the same color as the one in the video.

    It's funny this thread came up, because while I was digging out my driveway from the latest storm and wondering where we'll pile any future snow, I was thinking that rig could be kinda handy. "Fling that snow out inta the woods." :cool:

    In my signature is a 1951 8N. It was on the cover of the classic tractor calendar a few years ago. My Dad was pushing snow with it in the picture.
