Good Old Trucks. Including Some Like You’ve Never Seen

DUNCAN, B.C.— If you liked the 1951 Pacific EMOD truck that graced the July cover of Today’s Trucking magazine, you would have LOVED visiting the British Columbia Forest Discovery Centre here on this past weekend.

That’s where The American Truck Historical Society (ATHS) Vancouver Island Chapter held its annual Antique Truck Display.

The1951 Pacific, which is owned by Bruce Adams of Cedar, B.C., was on hand along with numerous other old and lovingly restored rigs; the likes of which haven’t been seen on roads in ages.

The show, according to the ATHS’s Ed Petillion of Shawnigan Lake, was a success despite the relentless high temperature.

Petillion says this is the first year that the show was held at the Discovery Centre and he hopes it’s there again next year.

The Vancouver Island chapter of the ATHS has about 31 members from various towns and cities across the Island, and the group’s biggest annual event is the annual Duncan extravaganza. The event has been known to attract more than 100 trucks.  

For a look at this past weekend’s show, check out these photos. Robert Bouvier of Sidney, B.C., took the terrific pictures and created the short but memorable Powerpoint. Enjoy!
