  • Cherished trucks evoke a past era

    Organizer and publisher Patrick Ertel bids farewell to a few of the vintage trucks at the 14th annual vintage truck show last Saturday, Aug. 1, at Young’s Dairy. His magazine Vintage Truck hosts the event, which draws truck enthusiasts from across the country. Over 150 trucks were exhibited, from antique firetrucks to pickups to military transports.
