              This just looks like 1958-59 by looking only at the truck driver

                          Yeah.....old enough to remember these old transports.
                          Was a big deal when one of these would roll into town.

                          Good stuff.

                            I got thinking of my dad with these.
                            as humble as the fifties go, he got a ride as a little boy..late mid 50s. I did not know the exact rig, but that it was tanker, long base.. kinda like the scary duel truck.

                            he started driving when I was born, 1973..
                            his realm was 250-290, 300, 350, 425, 450, 475, 500, now a 50 psi 280 inch wheelbase w900 with a 550..

                            I am only 39, and started off as a boy with the 290, all the way to florida in a leaf spring cabover. 60s mph down a hill...dropping a ten speed all the way to the splitter in the hills (5th gear or less) spewing the coal. the pipe was always my side, I used to catch its shadow in the thickness of the smoke.

                            worth collecting, as nightmarish as those machines were.. it is history. the backwards brake function years.. alot of nightmares and danger. as the saying goes "men were men".

                            manual steering..imagine manual steering with a car on top of the damn cab?
                            holy crap.

                            my dad had a few of those years. the "hulk hogan" years.(he had quite a set of pipes on him)

                              As did my dad... Arms to die for... Then he retired..
                              My fondest memories, him playing the harmonica, or whistling, reaching thru the steering wheel, shifting one lever up, the other down.. 15-25 mph hairpins way up in the coast range 1958 Pete...
                              His last truck sure was fancy! Air ride everything one shifter many gears.. Over the road in 14 western states, poles, bridge beams, glue lamms for highschool gyms
