I’ve Got My Faves. Which Are Yours? (Art On Wheels, Part Three)

8:51 AM

Last Friday, the first day without rain in what seemed like forever for southeast Pennsylvania, I decided pretty early in the morning to scour the grounds of local businesses in pursuit of colorful designs and nifty patterns. I’d gone on such journeys twice before, penning the recaps for the publication that you’re currently staring at. And speaking of which, if you are interested in reading about Art On Wheels, parts one and two, then click here and here. Okay, with that matter out of the way, let’s now move on to my latest effort to spot and photograph good-looking trucks and vans.

8:55 AM

I left my suburban Philadelphia home at 8:45 AM. Six minutes later, near the delivery bays of my town’s supermarket, I parked my car and got out to snap a picture of a Maier’s truck that was filled with breads and rolls. Hey, not only did I like the looks of the truck, I also liked the feeling that immediately swelled up within me: Namely, that this was going to be a productive morning. I mean, the supermarket was the first place I visited, and right off the bat I’d hit pay dirt.

9:02 AM

Pay dirt. I knew from past experience that it wasn’t necessarily lurking everywhere. Hardly. For every truck and van worthy of attention there are 15 or more that are real plain Janes. Not only that, it ain’t possible to photograph the lookers, vehicularly-speaking, that are on the move. If I attempted to do so while I too was cruising along the road, then I’d now be writing this opus from six feet under.

9:11 AM

I’m here to report that things panned out. After immortalizing the Maier’s truck, I spent an additional, and fruitful, hour and 45 minutes on my project. In parking and delivery areas during that time I met plenty of trucks and vans, of which nine (including Maier’s) made the grade. And — bonus! — later in the day, while coming home from an ordinary shopping mission, I lucked out by crossing paths with a long, long trailer that was making a delivery to a Dunkin’ Donuts store about half a mile from my house. That bad boy was a slam f*cking dunk for me. And it brought the total up to 10.

9:30 AM

Ten excellent vehicles! That’s success in my oddball book. After all, this was a mission of serendipity. It was impossible for me to know what trucks, if any, would be at the locales I visited. Yeah, for some reason truck drivers don’t give me their delivery schedules. And one beauty, a Lehigh Valley dairy products truck, wasn’t where I’d have expected it to be. Instead of being in the delivery section of the Walmart mega-store on whose property it was parked, it was on the outskirts of Walmart’s enormous parking lot. Its driver was not in sight. Maybe she or he was reclining amidst the cargo, grabbing some ZZZs. Whatever, I was more than glad to find that truck.

9:36 AM

Well, I’ve placed the photographs of the 10 head-turners in the order that I encountered them, noting the time that I snapped each picture. And I’ve studiously gazed at the photographs, trying to come up with my top three. It wasn’t easy. For instance, I dig the Utz truck, which carried potato chips and other snacks. Its black, white and red design reminds me of the era, maybe 20 or 30 years ago, when those three colors, in conjunction, were de rigeur in the fashion world. But ultimately Utz didn’t make my cut. I guess that these days I’m more in tune with splashy lines and a palette that dips broadly into the color spectrum.

10:13 AM

Here then are my top three, in ascending order: Edible Arrangements, Lehigh Valley and Dunkin’ Donuts. Yes, that Dunkin’ truck drives me wild. “I’m Number One! I’m Number One!” I can hear it yelling.

10:25 AM

And how about you? Which of these 10 exhibits particularly ring your bells? If you let me know in the comments section, indicating the ranking you give each of your top three choices, then I’ll compile the results. And once that’s done I’ll spend however many it takes of my remaining Earthly days to track down the winning vehicle. And when that mission is accomplished I’ll pin a big gold ribbon somewhere on its glorious body.

10:57 AM

One final note: Yes, I agree, it’s on the odd side for a geezer, let alone anyone, to get his jollies from trolling the parking and delivery areas of shopping centers, strip malls and stand-alone businesses, with art as his prey. What can I say? I like to wander. I like to look at pretty things. When it comes to jollies, my philosophy is to try and grab ’em where and when I can. Amen.

    My faves in the “abstract” category are: 1 Red Bull, 2 Kush’s, 3 Utz. In the “realistic category: 1 Lehigh Valley, 2 Coastal Sunbelt Produce, 3 Edible Arrangements. I love donuts, but those splashing drinks make me uneasy…

    Kush’s just shades it ahead of Coastal Sunbelt for me. I like the pop art feel of it (Lichtenstein, or is that just me?) I also love the phrase ‘mission of serendipity,’ by the way, and might use it in a lyric some time, if that’s ok?

    Keep prowling those supermarket car parks, Neil.

    This is some beautiful truck art, Neil. My favorite truck-art-day so far. Here’s my list:

    1. Kush’s Sliders: I love the big, fat letters with the shadows, and those sliders and fries tucked in there almost as an afterthought. The blue-black-orange color scheme is also great, including the polka-dot pattern. I can see Warhol digging this one.
    2. Coastal Sunbelt: the fruit is just so big and bad. Love the simplicity here.
    3. Grundy: a little offbeat, a little throwback-y. I’m guessing this is a custom job. The script lettering is attractive, and of course the old-time car. I wish you’d have knocked on the door and awakened the owners, though.
    Honorable mention: Utz. That cute little Orphan Annie-style girl just does it for me.

    At first I gave the nod to Lehigh Valley, since I love nature scenes, but decided this is too cliché. Kush’s it is.

    By the way, my boss just asked me what I was doing. I figured the best thing to do was to be honest. But he laughed. I don’t think he believed me.

    My rankings, sir.

    3rd place: Coastal Sunbelt Produce – for its simplicity and the way those coy-ass looking strawberry and pineapple pop against the blue. (That strawberry is up to no good, and you just know that the pineapple doesn’t take sh*t from anyone.)

    2nd place: Lehigh Valley – because blue skies and green pastures (the cattle must be in the barn).

    1st place: Dunkin’ Donuts – because I want to take this photo to the hair place and ask for highlights in all the shades of that crazy coffee swirl.

    Honourable mentions to Grundy Insurance (for the bad-ass flame – really changes the vibe of the ad) and Excel (something about that escalator is kinda mesmerizing).

    Can’t say that I expected to be voting on business/delivery vehicle art this evening, but it was a delightful and surprisingly fun turn of events. Thanks, Neil!

    I would award runner-up to Red Bull. I like its bold, clean design. Like something the Shakers might have come up with, if only they’d been drinkers.

    They are all very good, but I also like DD best.  The splashy coffee reminds me of Jackson Pollock’s paintings, and the overall composition (with the DD sign and the friendly clouds) is special.

    My #2 is CSP, for its simple and communicative layout, with harmonious bright colors.  Sometimes the pineapples I see in the supermarket’s produce section really do look like that.

    My #3 is Excel, for its attention-grabbing use of perspective.

    BTW, Utz makes sweet potato chips that are quite good and less salty than many brands of chips.  Their truck is nice enough, but their sweet potato chips are what is really special.

    From some years now many companies are beautifying their trucks with distinctive artsy paintings, now, it’s not lost on me their ultimate goal is to sale you something, however it’s refreshing seeing some color, and aesthetic color designs, on them, when before the monochrome anonymity, or just the logo company was the norm.

    Never thought of taking pictures of them, however on my long commutes to work, and back, it was a thing to notice the change it brought, ironically, weird me, used it to predict the end of a business, or affair of my own according to what I could decipher some symbolism in the painting, like a sort of synchronicity, (did the same thing with billboards).

    In plain English what’s the message they are giving me, relevant to my problems, and affairs?

    As an example, a Lady friend of mine who seemed to have a personal interest in me, but refused to go out with me, told me the same day after seeing a fish company truck painting of a fish on a hook.

    “Alright, I will go out with you, I believe you are not the type of person I should look forward to have a relationship with, but feel that you are pulling me like a fish on a hook!”

    It was just a coincidence?

I have to say that I’m not a believer in the kinds of messages and symbolisms that you talk about, But I totally understand that some people do believe in this. In regard to your lady friend, I have a feeling that she actually wanted to go out with you and was subconsciously looking for something that she could say was pointing her in that direction.

      I’m very glad that you added your thoughts to my story about truck art. Have a great rest of the week.

      Neil S.

    My favorite is the Coastal Sunbelt Produce – the name and the picture are so evocative of fresh fruit. 🍓

      Hi Kerry, and many thanks for stopping by. You have given Coastal its fifth #! vote. Dunkin’ Donuts is the highest vote-getter so far, and very likely will remain so. Have a great day.

        My favorite van around these parts is a Mexican supplier of avocados (with avocados painted all over it). I always want to sneak one out…

    Hee hee! You and my son Biff would be great pals. One of his favorite things to do is watch trucks, study trucks, get up’n’close to trucks. Bash follows for the fun of it, but Biff’s the gearhead of the twins. 🙂 And I gotta say that Dunkin’ Donuts trailer’s got quite the eye-catchin’ splash of color to it with the ribbon of spilled coffee!
    Yet I fear I should shed a tear for that coffee… 🙂

      Hi Jean. Biff sounds like my kind of guy.
      Thanks for stopping by. I’m going to give your top vote to Dunkin’. It now has 11 #1 votes, and is way ahead.

        Hey, it’s pretty! The truck depicting a classic vehicle…darnit, forget the brand…was nice, but it’s the ribbon of spilled coffee that does it for me. ‘Tis stylish. 🙂

    I will keep with the milkman delivery truck. It is iconic of simpler less commercialized times.

      AOC, you have given the fourth #1 vote to the Lehigh Valley truck. It has done nicely in the voting, but Dunkin’ Donuts remains way ahead of the rest of the field.

    I stumbled upon your site..I am new to all these ways of taking pictures..somewhat older too(50ish)..I experimented with photography a little back in the good ole’ days-I like the dunking donuts truck, Red Bull and the Coastal Sunbelt truck. I have good memories of these; wish I could remember more..thanks!

      Thanks for stopping by, Sandra. Like most people these days, I take photos with my phone. In my opinion, it’s the way to go.
      Have a great weekend.

    These are all interesting – even the elevator/escalator service van – but the Kush’s Sliders wins hands-down for me. A good truck is the ultimate ace tucked in the sleeve, in my opinion.

      If I tabulated things correctly, then you have given Kush’s it’s sixth #1 vote. Dunkin Donuts remains way ahead. Thanks for voting!

      Hi Jane. You’ve given that truck either it’s first or second #1 vote. I’ll have to check to get the correct number. Many thanks for reading and voting!

    Definitely Utz! If only for their slogan I’ve occasionally seen: “It’s Utz against them.”

      That’s a great slogan. Don’t think I ever heard it. By the way, you’ve given Utz its fifth #! vote. Dunkin’ Donuts has a huge lead in the voting,
