    I was doing some research and came across this web site. Now the only problem is talking my wife into a trip to Maine!

    Cole Land Transportation Museum

    "They are alleged to have the largest display of snow removal equipment under one roof in America. "

    Chuck, if you decide to come up some weekend let me know and I'll arrange to meet you. Bangor is only about an hour from me. Funny, I've never heard of that musuem.

    If you're interested in old trucks, check out the "American Truck Historical Society" , and consider becoming a member. Membership includes a bi-monthly magazine subcription which occassionaly has articles on antique snowplows. There's always an old plow truck listed in the classifieds, which takes up 3 to 4 pages.

    There's also the Antique Truck Club of America. It's more of a new england truck club. Lots of local chapters in the states. I'm a member of the Connecticut Yankees and the Sound Shore Chapter.

    In this months issue of Wheels of Time, someone in connecticut is selling an oshkosh, looks nice but he wants $8,000 for it.

    At the Antique Truck Club of America show in June, there was a big old walters snowfighter there.


    I've always liked the B model macks.



    Check out those 2 clubs, some pretty neat magazines and information.
