Many years ago Dale was given an old Divco milk truck from the Farm Fresh owners down in Chester, the kind of truck which was once used in home dairy delivers. For some time the old truck was taking up space in our driveway, but then was taken to a rural area outside of Collinsville and stored in a friend's storage barn. There it sat for years waiting for Dale to get it going again. Yesterday he arranged for a restoration company to get it and take it to Precision Restorations on Forest Park Parkway where it will begin the long process of a complete redo.
Dale could not be more thrilled. He delivered milk in a truck like this during college and seminary summers.
Here he is when the truck was on Tillotson.
And here is what yesterday looked like.
And at its new home for some time to come.
