The local heavy duty spring shop has been a real gold mine of plow spotting recently. Of course, this is usually the case no matter the time of the year. Fortunately for me it happens to be on my path home from many activities so it’s easy for me to keep tabs on what is going on.
Last week there happened to be this Western Star 4800 6×6 for the Onondaga County DOT.
And Just yesterday there happened to be and older International 2674. When I first drove by the shop on Tuesday evening the truck was lined up outside the fenced in area which usually means (I think) the work on the truck is complete and ready for pickup. I didn’t have my camera on me (rookie move) so I had to wring my hands and move on. I never would have guessed the truck would still be sitting on the lot come Wednesday but there it was!
The final truck in today’s collection is something of an old ball. It’s an older Model Autocar sporting a Town of Amboy Highway Department seal. Underneath the seal you can see the old lettering for the Town of Manlius Highway Department. The mystery deepens as this truck was spotted working on some sort of sewer project in the city of Syracuse! I guess someone forgot to scrape the old decals from the doors before auction.
