Our Vintage Trucks in Vintage Period Correct Scenes thread

Jim, 52 Coast Guard Panel, suggested someone start a thread that shows our trucks in front of a vintage looking, period correct background Ike an old bridge, barn, warehouse, factory, or mill, etc.

All start with two pictures of my 54 F100 in front of two bridges near me.

This covered bridge picture was from September 2015




And this one was from last Saturday



Who is next?

Abe I love e your truck!!! She sure does look good. I've been thinking about this for some time and have a spot in mind but it will take some time to arrange something. I like this idea and hope it catches on.

Here is my truck in front of the SS Spartan, a coal fired, steam powered Lake Michigan car ferry. The SS Spartan, along with its sister ship, the SS badger, were built in 1952, the same year as my truck. The Spartan was taken out of service a number of years ago, but the Badger still makes two crossings a day during the Great Lakes navigation season.

In the old days, the ferries carried railroad cars in addition to passengers and vehicles, and ran all winter. They were designed to be able to break ice and to run in any weather. These days, the Badger carries only passengers and cars and trucks. A round trip ticket for a passenger and with a vehicle costs about $125. The Badger is the last ferry of its type in the world to be still in operation. The SS Badger runs between Manitowoc, Wisconsin and Ludington, Michigan.

So cool to see this. I was fortunate to have ridden on the sister ship the Badger around 1968 when the ferry service between Milwaukee and Ludington was still available.

There is still ferry service out of Milwaukee. These days the Milwaukee Ferry goes to Muskegon. The ferry is a catamaran type vessel that is fast and expensive. A round trip ticket costs $400 plus. The crossing only takes about 3 hours vs 5 hours for the Badger. I may take the Milwaukee ferry on my way back from Pennsylvania in September, but I'm not sure a picture would qualify for this thread. A catamaran doesn't even look like a boat let alone the Badger--Its kind of like the difference between an F1 and a Mustang.

We've taken the Badger several times from Ludington to Manitowoc when visiting family in northern Wisconsin. The first time was in 1972 in my '64 Chevy just a couple of months after getting married. We did it again a few years latter with the kids. We got a stateroom thinking the kids could nap while we sailed across the lake but it was so hot and noisy that no-one could sleep.

I took this in my front yard today. The barn is a little older than the truck, around 1880.



I'll try to take another tonight when I have the lights on.

I took this one of my 1950 F-1 during a magazine photo shoot. I always liked shots that make you wonder what year it was taken.

One from tonight with the barn lights on. I like the glow of the lights.



EDIT: Changed the picture. The one I uploaded last night looked OK on my phone but didn't look so good when I viewed it on my PC.
