We like to think that this International truck could tell some darn good stories. The miles it covered, who and what it carried. A single suitcase and a young man with dreams of places wild and untested, like that part of himself that pulled him westward. Or a family with just enough things to make a go of it in a small Montana town that made no promises.
If you want to see the truck for yourself, you’ll have to drive to historic Bannack, Montana, the first territorial capital of Montana (a side trip that was most definitely worth it).
The miles and years and weather have had their way with this truck, sure, but I wonder if it isn’t having the last laugh. The view from where it sits is pretty spectacular, and the town is quiet at night, when the visitors have gone. It’s probably outlasted anyone who ever drove it.
Who knows what all it got up to in its prime. I wish it could tell the stories, but maybe how it looks is all we need to know.
I left it all out on the road, it might say. Yes, that.
The print shown here is 16″ x 24″, but you have your choice of several sizes. The photo, from our in-house photographer Glen Jensen of Glen Alan Photography, is printed onto wood, with a groove across the back for easy hanging. (Hardware included.) Free shipping. Allow 2-3 weeks for delivery.
This would look great over the fireplace or in your office. And it’s a perfect Father’s Day gift!
