2018 Pumpkin Run Nationals Photos: Our River of Images Keeps Right On Flowing – Photos Here!

(Words and photos by Doug Gregory) – So this gallery and the next are made up of the movers of stuff.  These days most of these rarely carry more than a cooler and a chair or two, but I believe they’ve earned the rest.

Let me get this out of the way before I’m inundated with questions.  Why is the Crosley in here…?  Well I didn’t want to put it in the long-roofs and more doors because it doesn’t really have a long roof.  That and I always thought of them as more utility than automobile.  Besides, Cincinnati is Powell Crosley territory and it can do what it wants.

Now the next elephant in the room – the Stude sporting an Eaton-blown Iron Duke four-banger.  We never spotted the owners so we don’t have any details, but we dig the attitude and off-the-beaten-path build.

The red Mercury is only the third such example I can recall seeing in my 51 years.

Not unlike the Model As, there were tons of ’67-’72 Chevys scattered about.  Pick a build type and it was there.

Hanging out in the corner with the Falcons and Comets were a good assortment of Rancheros and even a couple Econolines.

My uncle Al and aunt Velma had an IH Travelall similar to this two-tone red unit.  They pulled a camper all over the country with that thing and I have some great memories of riding in it back in the ‘70s.

I have seen photos of some coupes with a bed added (early Ute), but this black ’37 Chevy is the first I think I’ve seen in person.  Kinda strange to me, but cool.

Look for another gallery of haulers coming soon.

    I’m new to bangshift. I’ve been thinking seriously about restoring an old or antique truck. It would probably be something of a rat rod until I could finish it into something that I could be proud of .So I need ideas and want to look look look. Thank you.
