Red Headed Step Children

The acquisition of White Motor Company in the early 80’s by Volvo and the subsiquent purchase of GM’s heavy truck operations led to a confusing time as far as nameplates are concerned. On their slow evolution to becoming Volvos the early WhiteGMC trucks have slowly faded away are routinely overlooked by truck fans as being some sort of unholy creation. That’s too bad because these trucks really aren’t that hard to look at. This White WC made it through the years fairly unscathed until recently I would guess but is now showing signs of neglect.

Also from the WC line is this truck working with a bridge repair crew. I spotted this near an I-81 exit and immediately knew it was worth a picture. Some day when all cars and trucks drive themselves the children of the future will be amazed and disgusted with human operated vehicles.
