When we saw the MOG truck in Berkeley, recently, we took a picture.

When is a flame paint job not a flame paint job?

February 3, 2011

We’ve run photos of flame paint jobs and so when we saw this truck in L. A. (a few months back) we snapped a photo to run as a variation on the theme.

It would seem to be the ultimate un-flame paint job, eh?

A truck with its own web page!

March 10, 2010

This canopy express Chev was spotted in Berkeley CA on March 9, 2010.

This old chevy has been run by its current owner for the last 39 years.  It was truck no. 3 for M. W. Hancock before the paint faded.  The owner described it as a “canopy express.”

This truck has its own webpage!

The truck’s history is on that page.

We saw this truck in Berkeley (near the Berkeley Bowl) on Tuesday, March 9, 2010.

We told the current owner (last 39 years) that we had seen his truck featured on jalopnik’s Down on the Streets department and he said he’d like to see it.  We’ll try to get the URL for those pictures and send them to the owner.

We’ll send an e-mail to the DOTS photo editor.

We told him that the owner that could use any of Floppy Photos pictures of his truck on the truck’s page, if he likes.

On Sunday, July 26, 2009, while visiting the flea market in Berkeley CA, we saw a truck that brought back old memories of Scranton and also a trip to the U. S. Grand Prix at Watkins Glen in 1965 . . . and some people from the past, too.
