Classic Trucking In ScaleCT Reader Marvin Walker of Kinston, North Carolina, is not only an avid classic trucker but a talented pine wood derby builder and racer, as well. As one of the instructors of Immanuel Baptist Church's Royal Ambassadors, Marvin participates in an annual pine wood derby race with his fellow instructors and, as you can see, takes his derby car (or rather, truck) building pretty darned seriously. This years racer was modeled after the Tucci Engineering '39 GMC that graced CT's cover a year or so ago. Marv's whittled version sports a tilt frontend that reveals a wooden engine, suicide doors and bed cover that open and close, and plastic windows all around. It's also outfitted with a completely detailed interior, glow-in-the-dark headlights, and a complete wooden exhaust system and rearend. Pretty darned impressive, isn't it? We thought so, and just had to share.
Super Chevy Show "Outstanding Classic Truck" WinnersSuper Chevy Shows' summer swing through the country began in Indianapolis where the very unusual '47 COE belonging to Bob Taylor of Bloomington, Illinois, which is actually used to haul a show car, caught the editor's eye. It was a shoo-in for the Outstanding Classic Truck award. Next up was the Maple Grove show in Reading, Pennsylvania, where bright pink pearl paint, the chopped top, the wide whites, and great body work on Pat and Joe Bochnowicz" Sellersville, Pennsylvania, '48 half-ton drew crowds all day long. No doubt about this one being the Outstanding Classic Truck winner.
When the Super Chevy editors rolled into Norwalk, Ohio, they did a double take at the color of East Canton, Ohio's Bud and Betty Breechbill's '51 pickup, wondering if they were being followed by a band of pink pearl painters. After a glance or two, the trucks are definitely different, but the '51 is distinctive in it's own right with a tilt bed exposing an ultra custom and detailed chassis. Another winner of the CLASSIC TRUCKS magazine's Outstanding Classic Truck award. When the Super Chevy Show visited Chicago's Route 66 Dragway, what was waiting for them? You guessed it, another '50s pickup, only this one was done up "Pro Street" style with mounds of horsepower sticking out of the hood. Couldn't help but award Mike Tuberman of Lemont, Ill. an Outstanding Classic Truck award.
