    Great trucks. Sounds like you had a fun time photographing them. I really like the Bassets ice cream one and the pea pod giant because they look like vintage advertising photos where food was impossibly perfect and ice cream was so enticing. The cow one is also very cute and remind me of children’s book illustrations.

      There’s a company in the USA called W B Mason. Their trucks are beautiful. One passed me on the road, but I wasn’t able to photograph it.

    That was fun. I also liked the ice cream truck as well.

    What a great idea for a story as none of us probably take too much notice of the designs emblazoned on the sides of delivery trucks – yet we obviously should.

    My favourite of yours is also the Kreider Farms lorry, just because that cow really is a bit of a looker and who wouldn’t want to live in a world that had pink skies!

      You know, I’m not sure if I had ever heard of Kreider before. I’ll have to start looking for their dairy products.

        If their products are as good as the artwork on their lorries, you’re in for a treat!

    I agree, the Kreider truck is stunning. I like the way the charming pink sky lightens as it hugs the rolling green hills, and the yellow orb of sun rises next to the fuchsia barn and silo. And the cow’s pink udders seem to whisper “Hey… over here… can I get a hand?” Seriously though, if you’re a pop-art aficionado, this sounds like fun. Neil, I’m looking forward to retirement!

    I am 100% behind the cow as my favorite. Now wouldn’t it have been awesome to catch the cow truck parked back to back with the ice cream truck…serendipity for sure!

    My vote is for the sub on top of Lee’s van. They didn’t just paint the truck, they added to it! What most companies don’t realize is that one’s truck is the best advertising. And if it stands out, you’d better be driving nice. (When your groundhog digs his grave, we’ll send you ours…)

    It looks as if I’m the only one who calls a truck a lorry around here – Different words for the same thing on opposite sides of the pond.

    Good eye, Neil! I just googled “ads on trucks” and saw a lot of photos of artistic (and very clever) advertising on trucks. Now I’ll be looking out for them, too!

    My late brother did this exact type of commercial art for many years in Omaha. He helped design and configure the decals and screen printing templates for vehicle graphics on vans, trucks, cars, and city buses. He greatly enjoyed his job.

    Neil, that’s such a great concept I may steal it for a Scottish version. Pea Pod Giant gets my vote by the way!

      Hello across the Atlantic.
      The peapod trucks are delivery trucks for the Giant chain of supermarkets. People order groceries online and peapod brings the order to their homes. Apparently a lot of people are doing this.
      Enjoy the weekend!

    I like the Kreider’s Farm truck best, not that you asked.

    So you plan to have Dig-Dig stuffed, hunh? Interesting. I absolutely swear on my mother’s grave that the following is true: When I was moonlighting in a thrift store job one summer from my normal job at the local high school, there was a woman who would come in to shop with the oldest rattiest-looking miniature poodle I’d ever seen. She carried it everywhere or put it in her shopping cart. Fast forward two years, and I saw the same woman get out of her car at a CVS, and that dog had been stuffed and was in the back window of her car.–Absolutely true and absolutely gross! Take it from me, don’t have Dig-Dig stuffed. It’s not nice to stuff your pets!
