Keep On Truckin'

At the Hays Antique Truck Museum, that is.

Filling up roughly half the floorspace of the terrific Heidrick Ag History Center, there is more cool truck stuff here than you can shake a stick at. Not that you'd want to, or that it would do any good. We thought about shaking a stick at whatever gremlin caused the weird stuttering slide show effect, but decided just to roll with it instead.

Pretty amusing. Like the tune, too.

That wooden truck was something else. A full-scale wooden model. How complete was it? As in, did it have a wooden motor? And if so, how complete was that??? Pistons that moved, and such?

I dug seeing that flatbed with the search light. It looked exactly like a cool Tonka toy I had as a little kid; I thought that search light was just so excellent. Seeing a full-size version was almost too much!
