Oldie But Goodie: Antique Truck Still in Service in Tucson, Arizona

By
Mortgage and Lending with SUNSTREET MORTGAGE, LLC (BK-0907366, NMLS 145171)

 They say it's a dry heat.  Summers get into the triple digits, but with the lack of rain and humidity year round (not to mention NO salt on the roads in winter) Tucson preserves its vehicles better than just about any place in the country.  Here's a great example.

I was pulling into one of my favorite watering holes for a cup of Joe and a hard salami pannini sandwich when the nose of this old truck came into view. 

By the time I got my camera up and running, I missed the front license plate, which would tell you the year, make and model.

If you know what it is, please comment below.  She's a beauty!

You really live the live in Tucson, don't you Mike!  I never knew that about your vehicles--very interesting trivia my friend!

Mike,  Looking at the side where it has some letters??  Because it's so long, I would guess it's an International.

I think Doreen has it pegged... Looks like the owner takes very good care of the old girl.  Old girl would be the truck, btw and not Doreen.  :)
