Another edition of Autocar Mondays is upon us. This time we have a later model Autocar is the form of this ACL of Saunders Concrete. This truck has held up well over the years considering it is probably twenty or more years old. I recently spotted this truck in the waaaaay back lot of Tracey Road Equipment. Using my trusty zoom lense I was able to get a decent shot of this rig.
I’ve mentioned the photo collection of Joe Kelly before and even shared a few of his photos on my site. If you haven’t checked on his photostream on Flickr I suggest you do so by clicking here. There is a great collection of photos and a wealth of information to enjoy. Joe recently uploaded a series of classic Autocars that once belonged to the Solid Waste Department of Oswego County. Browsing through the photos I noticed a familiar face. Take a moment to see if you notice what I did.
Did you spot the Saunders ACL near the top left? Both trucks were found at Tracey’s Road Equipment back in the mid 90’s. The DC model was an ’84 while the ACL is probably close to being brand new. Time has most likely removed the DC from out grasp but at least one of the two still lives on! Small world!
