Tuesday's Treasures

Old trucks dot the landscape - some have been sitting for years and have become a planter, and a resting place for old tires.

 Some are fixed up pretty and sparkle like never before

 I've shared this one before - but I like it - so here it is again.  It sits in front of a thrift store.
 Two big old work trucks - taking their rest.

 A fun drive!

 Parts and pieces - waiting to be restored?
 Not an old truck - but an old tractor - It sits in a field by a farm stand in LaConner, WA.  Scarlet runner beans have covered it all over.  You can see the seat and steering wheel in the back.
 Front of the tractor is barely peeking through

And just because - we'll see this one again.

Neat post, JoAnne. Old trucks and such are almost or maybe more fun than old barns. Maybe--LOL

I really like the one in front of the thrift shop, too. Great advertising. That overgrown tractor is impressive, too. Great shots!

WOW JoAnn, what a collection. So many are diamonds in the rough, but my choose would be '50s something red Ford pickup. Thanks, I hope to see your treasures again.

JoAnn, love seeing the old trucks. I learned to drive in one very similar to some of these. There is one made of hay bales on Hwy 80 that we see when we are going to Santa Cruz. It's kind of hard to stop for a photo on a busy freeway! Love to have that old blue trunk on the one in front of the thrift store..Happy Wednesday..Judy

There is something so solid and substantial about those old trucks. They serve like tanks. I love the restored one, and like the crumbling barns you often show, I wish every one of them could come back to life!

What a great selection! The thrift store truck bears repeating. It's very neat.

I'm partial to old red trucks. This is a very cool collection. BTW, thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. And finally, I LOVE your heading (or whatever that thing is called at the top of the blog :-).

I love the old tractor covered in runner beans! The thrift store truck is fun too.
