It’s not Monday (Thank God!) but that doesn’t mean we can’t take a look at this awesome early 40’s Autocar Wrecker. For reasons unknown (although I can take a guess) Andy was digging through the Tacoma Public Library online digital photo collection. I’m not sure he found what he was looking for but this photo is certainly a winner.
A Turner tow truck is lifting a big freighter on its towing rig. The freighter truck is pulling a trailer behind its regular load. The Turner truck cab has a dragon painted on the driver’s door and words, “Call Turner, White Drag-In”. Turner Towing was located at 2620 Pacific Avenue in Tacoma.
Interesting. I wonder what became of this fine looking truck. And no, I’m talking about that Peterbilt (?) out back on the hook. Great find Andy. Keep up the good work.
