Lost and Found – GMC Astro

I guess I should have been a dairy farmer with the way I’ve been milking the photos from my visit to Clarence and his part of the world. On the way back from checking out the local sites we cruised by a farm loaded with a wide variety of equipment from what appeared to be the dawn of time. One of the many interesting items was this GMC Astro. Take a good look and tell me what you see. That is not a trailer attached to the Astro. Yup, that is all frame back there. A rare site indeed nowadays.


I can’t seem to make out the name on the roof fairing but it looks like it starts of with B H I L and then it fades off. From what we can see the cab appears to be decent with just a dent on the passenger fender. Keep in mind this is a farm truck so who knows what horrors await in the cab. Let’s hope it returns to the road soon.

By the way, there is still one more photo to come from this trip. Stay tuned!
