Old Trucks You’ll Wish You Could Drive Today

1928 Fageol

It’s always fascinating to look at old trucks and imagine their various owners—and uses—over time. This charming 1928 Fageol, for instance, was originally used as a freight hauler to carry loads between Sacramento and Richmond, California. After that, it was bought by a farmer who used it to deliver hay to the animals around the farm.
