White Drag-In

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.

The photo caption reads as follows.

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.

    I guess I did have one buried in the pile of emails! I almost forgot about this one…

    And I was looking at the TPL for trucks… But not just any old trucks… They have a collection of early bulk feed truck photos in their collection… You know how hard it is to find vintage bulk feed bodies on the internet?

    That truck on the hook looks pretty flexible.
